AccordinK to all report)* thiH sixty- 
fourth commencement at the Mhhs. 
State College will Ik- nn outstanding 
one as far as the Alumni reunions are 
concerned. 'I'welve classes have indi- 
cated the intention of holding a 
reunion at the school this year. 

Among those classes which will be 
represented here are 1879, the 55-year 
class, which will be represented at the 
Commencement exercises by George 
P. Smith and H. Waldron; 1884, the 
50-year class, and the class of 1889, 
whose representative will be Dr. H.

a large attendance. It will hold its 
headquarters m Itoom 2, Memorial 
Hall. Hr. S. F. Howard is the secre- 
tary. The class of 1904 is holding a 
supper at the Bates Inn, North Am- 
herst, at 6.30 on Saturday evening. 
Secretary P. F. Staples is cooperating 
with S. R. Parker regarding plans. 
The class of 1909 is planning a big 
25th reunitm, with a buffet supper at 
Paige Laboratory on Saturday evening. 
The plans of the class of 1914 are in 
charge of Leone Smith. 

Secretary R. T. Howe of the 15-year 
class of 1919 announces that the class 
headquarters will l>e in Room 2, of 
the Physical Education building. 
Special students, registered at the 
college from 1917 through 1919 will 
hold an informal reunion arranged by 
J. Burt of Boston, Mass. A committee 
consisting of K. Carpenter, Mary 
Foley, and Al Leiand are making 
arrangements for a reunion with full 
attendance. It will include an in- 
formal get-together and a class dinner 
today. B. Robertso, Betty Lynch, 
C. J<ihn.son and J. Kay have charge 
of the plans for the class of 1929. 
There will be a class supper, in Draper 
Hall. Al Chadwick and Ding Dan- 
gelmayer are planning an informal 
reunion for the class of 1931. They 
too will have a supper in Draper Hall. 
The 1933 class is having a reunion in 
charge of Dick KarLson. of Worcester. 


At the Flint Oratorical 
Contest held last evening 
first prize was won by Ray- 
mond F. Burke '34. His 
subject was America and 
"Sweetness" and "Light." 
Second prize was won by 
Albert F. Burges, Jr. '35. 
His subject was Can America 
Civilize Herself.' 

From Stanford University comes the 
news tliat women students of that 
school will be permitted to visit men's 
dormitory rooms. President Wilbur, 
who had previously decreed that 
women would not be allowed in the 
men's dorms, decided to make a test 
case of an annual formal, announcing 
that the students would be placed on 
their honor. The only restriction was 
that the doors be left open.

Scoring a total of 90 points while 
allowing the sophs but 10, the fresh 
decisively showed their superiority in 
baseball, track, and the greased-pole 
rush in the second annual Memorial 
Day interclass battle. While the 
yearling baseball team was beating 
the '36 team on the varsity field in a 
free-hitting game to the tune of 10-8, 
the track team defeated the '36 
runners by the score of 75-32. In the 
wrestling matches Dunker '36 got the 
decision over Holdsworth '37, and 
Gray '37 threw Bray '36. In the final 
event of the day, the greased-pole 
rush. Marble '37 got the cap after 
two minutes of bitter struggle. 

Dobby '37 was the outstanding 
track man winning the 100, the 220, 
the 440 yard dashes, while Lapham 
'37 won the discus, the shot put, and 
finished second in the javelin throw. 

Dr. David Segel of the Federal 
Bureau of Education exploded the 
myth about the 12-year-old average 
intelligence of Americans. The average 
really comes out to about 17, because 
there are 3,000,000 at the 12-year level 
and about 40,000,000 at 17 or above 
mentally. Of the latter group about 
10.000,000 are awfully smart fellows 
because their average is above 23.

At the last meeting of the Sue ial 
Union committee, extensive plans wtre 
made for next year's programs wh^h 
will be extended to have six or seven 
Social Union entertainments insteiid ,,f 
the usual four. 

Outstanding among the bookings 
for next year is a program featuring 
Ted Shawn and his men dancers on 
October 26. Other programs will in- 
elude a vocal quartette (either the 
Varsity Club or the Mansfield Sing- 
ers), a dramatic group such as the 
Jitney Players, Robert Frost, Hill 
Cunningham, sports reporter, an In- 
strumental group, and John Mul- 
hoUand, magician.

plans were discussed to locate the 
library on the Drill Field opposite the 
old stone chapel. 

F'ebruary 1, the time of the begin- 
ning of operations, was approaching 
and still the contracts had not been 
let. then came the startling announce- 
ment that funds for the construction 
of these buildings would not be avail- 
able until the 15th of February at the 
earliest- The student body said good- 
bye buildings; the Board of Trustees 
said we must have names for these 
buildings, and on January 18, at the 
seventieth annual meeting of the 
Board of Trustees of the Massachu- 
setts State College, the name of 
Thatcher Hall, in honor of the late 
Dr. Roscoe W. Thatcher, tenth presi- 
dent of the college, was given the 
dormitory, and the library was named 
in honor of the late Henry Hill Coodell, 
president of the college from 1886- 

On March 30. one month later than 
had originally been anticipated, the 
contract for Thatcher Hall was let to 
the {?eorge H. Reed & Co., Inc., of 
(Jreenfield. and ground was officially 
broken by the late Dr. (;e«)rge H. Ellis, 
vice-chairman of the board of trustees. 
on May 6. Final authorization to call 
for bids on the (Joodell Library came 
in the last week of March, and the 
contract was subsequently let to the 
E. J. Pinney Co.. Inc. of Springfield.

Final arrangements for spending the 
summer abroad have been made by 
William Kozlowski '34 who will sail 
as saxophonist with the Amherst 
Serenaders on a tour of Europe within 
a week after graduation. Kozlowski 
was a member of the band while at 
college and directed an orchestra of 
his own at many campus functions. 

The Serenaders will leave on the 
Transylvania on the 16th under the 
direction of Harold Raby. After 
touring Scotland on motorcycle, they 
will visit England, France, Germany,

In the college itself the recognition 
of standards should be made manifest 
in the curriculum and in the attitude 
of the college toward the ephemeral 
and transient interest of the hour. A 
.sound and conservative policy of 
discrimination based upon what is 
deepest and most universal in man's 
experience should determine the plan- 
ning of the curriculum. The college 
must especially guard against the 
sentimental desire to give incompe- 
tent students "a chance." Such a 
procedure, together with the levelling 
of standards through the offering of 
courses which are not primarily edu- 
cational, defeats the very aims of 
education. We must above all hold 
firm to standards of the excellent and 
the durable, and in a democracy check 
the drift toward pure democracy" 
through stressing quality rather than 
quantity. Then service will have an 
abiding value, being guided by the 
leadership of the few. the remnant; 
and leadership will be to a good end, 
being based upon the wisdom of the 
ages, the universal experience of 
mankind. — F. S. T.

that in the vote for favorite actress 
Maude Adams led her nearest com- 
petitor by five votes to one. But 
Maggie Wylie will live on after Maude 
Adams has been forgotten. There may 
be those who will remember her in 
the artistry of Helen Hayes. There 
may be those who will remember her 
in the person of Shirley McCarthy. 

Many people object to Barrie. They 
say he is sentimental, oblivious to the 
ugliness and reality of life, illogically 
assured that "Gods in His heaven." 
Well, some of us go to men like Barrie 
to escape from the ugliness of life; 
and some of the objectors go to men 
like O'Neil to escape from its beauty. 
As a matter of fact What Every Woman 
Knows is not a very happy play. 
Maggie and John and Sybil are all 
living close to some rather unpleasant 
realities. But it Ls characteristic of 
Barrie that he dwells upon the in- 
herent manliness and womanliness of 
his fictional folk, and the reader comes 
away from his books feeling that it 
isn't so bad to be a human being 
after all. 

Of the cast Kramer alone is new. 
Miss Dolan and Miss Ford were im- 
portant figures in the musical play 
Let's Go Nutty. Law played the part 
of Orlando in As You Like It, and 
both McGuckian and Bobbins were 
in that play. The veterans are, of 
course, Warren Southworth and Miss 
McCarthy. At the beginning of their 
freshman year both were cast in small 
parts in The Americans Come, and they 
have played in varied roles in every 
Roister Doister production since. The 
local public have come to know and 
appreciate their quality: their speech 
excellence, their adaptibility, their 
stage presence, their intensity in inter- 
pretation. But the public cannot have 
known of their merits backstage: 
their fine spirit during the almost 
intolerable tediousness of rehearsal, 
their responsiveness to high standards 
in both plays and production, their 
invariable willingness to 8ul>ordinate 
their own interests to those of the 
group as a whole. The tone and 
temper of the society have been 
enormously improved because of their

Little Chani^e from Laxt Year 

Twenty-four of the class of 1934 
have made plans for the coming year, 
whereas only twenty-three of the class 
of 1933 found employment before 
leaving college. The present senior 
has much the same point of view a.< 
last year's senior. Two- thirds of both 
classes favored the award of the 
bachelor of arts degree; seventy-five 
per cent believe a Phi Kappa Phi key 
to be of greater value than a varsity 
letter; two-thirds read poetry for 
pleasure, and sixty-five per cent have 
a definite philosophy of life. The class 
of 1934 proved to be more changeable 
than its predecessor, as four-fifths of 
the students changed their religioas 
views after coming to college, while 
only fifty per cent of the class of 1933 
saw fit to change their religious views. 
The remaining questions were an- 
swered as follows: 

Do you expect to conduct an inde- 
pendent study of some subject purely 
for enjoyment? Yes 24. No 7.

worthwhile? Yes 21. No 7. 

Do you think the curriculum ^ 
strict enough? Yes 9. No 17. 

Do you favor the term or the semest- 
er .system? Term 6. Semester 28. 

Do you favor the abolition of inter- 
collegiate contests and the substitution 
of more tennis and golf? Yes 13. No 

What is your favorite topic of 
conversation? Women, People, Ath- 

Do you think the college should 
become larger? Yes 26. No 9. 

What do you consider the principal 
fault of the college? Faculty. Narrow- 
ness. Lack of Prestige. 

Do you favor the continuance of 
the R.O.T.C? Yes 22. No 9. 

Are you in favor of more inter- 
fraternity and interclass athletics 
Yes 5. No 19. 

Are you in favor of the hoiDf 
system? Yes 34. No 2. 

From what phase of M.S.C have 
you gained the most? Scholarship 10 
Academic activities 5. Athletics 3 

What change in the college has 
been most outstanding since y""^ 
enrollment? Change of name. 

Would more freshman rule.s ^ 
desirable? Yes 24. No 11. 

Do you favor three morning chape^ 
or the weekly convocation? Chape'*

With the close of work this week, the

(Concrete realization of the dreams 
of Mas.sachusetts State College alumni 
for t)ver fifty years, (loodell Library 
and Thatcher Hall now stand partly 
completed with their steel and brick 
work practically finished. However, 
the relaying of the steam mains and 
the converting of the Horticultural 
Karn into an addition to the infirmary 
which were undertaken in conjunction 
with the construction of Coodell 
Library and Thatcher Hall are not as 
far advanced as the main buildings. 

With the entire structure one-third 
completed, the construction work on 
Cioodell Library advances rapidly aa 
the brick -work is completed to the 
third floor line. The steel-work for 
the central part of the roof is in place 
and the concrete work of the floors 
has been poured. Work has pro- 
gressed to such an extent that every 
thing is in readiness for the installa- 
tion of the five story book stack which 
is now under construction. The main 
construction has been slowed by the 
care needcnl to correctly install the 
numerous lighting and ventilating 
facilities which will be features of the 
building. The stone for the elaborate 
front of the library is expected to be 
installed soon. 

Work on Thatcher Hall is further 
advanced because its construction was 
begun early last spring. The gipsum 
blocks which form the base of the 
fire- proof slate roof are in place, the 
brick-work is finished and the concrete 
floors have l)een poured. I'he stairs

cent years. With the modern im- 
provements which have increas<'d the 
use of the camera, however, the usi- of 
woodcuts has diminished. 

It is necessary to make a dcfmite 
distinction l)etween woodcuts and oil 
paintings or other pictures. Whereas 
oil paintings usually rtHjuire a dark 
background and large impressive sur- 
roundings, thest* exquisite woodcuts 
are most effective in small nioms with 
quiet surroundings and light back- 
grounds. Thes«! small pictures, when 
framed in narrow bla<:k frames and 
bung in small rooms with light sur- 
roundings, such as dens, have very 
high decorative value. Leighton's exhibit ctmsists of 
a set (if twelve prints "Farmer's 
Year" including such typical scenes 
as "Ploughing," "Apple Picking," 
"Lambing," a set of six prints, "Lum- 
ber Camp," including the scenes of 
"Cutting," "Loading," "Resting," etc. 
In addition there are several interpre- 
tations such as "Calf Auction," 
"Frightened Shepherd Boy," "The 
Jungle" and "Skyscrapers,"

Clare I.«ighton is a young British

Summer school is over but it cer- 
tainly left its mark upon many of us. 
One instructor, anxious to take ad- 
vantage of the bonus given for teach- 
ing a summer course made sure of 
having a sufficient number of students 
by enrolling his wife, his sister, and 
his mother-in-law in the course. An- 
other found that all of the under- 
graduate students interested in his 
course were taking it in the summer 
rather than in the college year. Fear- 
ing that his yearly salary would be 
discontinued if he had no students, he 
flunked a couple of summer-schoolers 
and thus made sure of his job.

minates in the idea of leisure." This idea requires that all partial aims and 
suecial" discipline should lie .subordinated to the .specifically human form ..f 
effort that is put forth in mediation and finally in the ontemplative life or 
lif^ «.f vision. President Kliot recommended an outer effort the effort of 
utilitarian type, with service as the goal.

Pr.umalism a method of tb.iught in which is laid upon practical 
...n.seuuenies as standards for interpreting philosophic conceptions, and as 
testa for determining their values. the philosophy with which American 
..olleues have to be a.sst.ciated in the eyes of the world is from either 
a or humanistic point of view, raw and uncivilized. The utilitarian 
form of effort with s4-rvice as th.- has been especially needful in our con- 
, uest of North America; however, having developed in fullest measure the 
vU-Tues of the pioneer, we are now in danger of liecoming the victims «.f them. 
'I'he idea of leisure is in itself so important that if American educators did 
.leveU... it adequately we might l>e in a position to a.s.sume the cultural leader- 
1 u of the world It is depressing that we are showing so little grasp of the 
situation that our higher education in particular, so far from aiming to pro- 
duce the 'man of leisure, is being more and more ct.mpletely dominated by the 
"ideals ■ of the utilitarian. 

IhiliioiiM Value of Kleelive System 
The elective .system, which President Kliot sponsored, tends to identify 
the ideal needs of' the individual student with the mere unfolding of his tem- 
oerament and idiosyncrasy. Kvery college youth, the supporters of the elec- 
tive system assume, has some innate gift a gift which is treated with almost 
religious seriousness, and is therefore to suffer no contradiction. 1 he effort 
ilu.t he t.uts forth along the lines of temperamental bias or prejudice will 
make for his own happiness and finally be pressed into the .service of humanity. 
What proof is there after all. that .s<. purely temperamenta' a person as Presi- 
.ilnt Fliofs theory lends to produce will l)e altrui.stic? None, we believe. 
Ar?stotle evidently had in mind a different type of effort based on a different 
.o'Lption of happiness when he declared. "We ought also to take into con- 
s der tit.n our own natural bias, which varies in each man s case, and will be 
.'scerlained from the pleasure and pain arising in us. 1- urthermore we should 
.rce ourselves off in the contrary direction because we shall find ourselves 
far from the wrong side, exactly as men do in straightening out a crooked

Cheer up frosh. You're in the army now. 
One militarist says: "(lirls of both 
sexes are hilariously parading our 
college campuses in emotional and 
muscular outbursts to end all wars. 
Those girls (1 refer to pacifists of both 
sexes) are never going to rest until they 
strip the military uniform from every 
theater doorman and hotel taxi starter 
in the country." 

Some members of the Senate are 
wondering if they really hold the

question is to wear the hat for 
frosh respect or to burn it quick for 
.self respect. 

That hectic first week. . . 

Some members of the administra- 
tion place their faith in the sign 
language when freshmen are concerned, 
at least until those mental examina- 
tions are corrected. One faculty mem- 
ber was led to remark: "When you 
come for your appointment, bring 
your registration card. That's that 
salmt.n colored thing you carry around 
with you. 

A hit premature, but worthy of con- 
sideration, worthy of consideration 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

Extra! Extra! P'ourteen students 
register for the band! How much 
longer is the student body going to 
tolerate this deplorable .situation which 
gets worse and worse each year and 
which has come to be a campus joke.' 
Out of approximately seven hundred 
men students here at college there are 
surely more than fourteen who can be 
classified as musicians, for musicians 
are what we need. Because there were 
no try-outs in previous years, the 
band has l)een filled with dead wood, 
and a few hard-working students have 
almost blown their heads off to com- 
pensate for the lack of volume and 
musical ability among some of the 
members. What has been the result? 
Some noise, some rhythm and no 

Every college needs a good band. 
The band has an important musical 
function to perform which too often 
has not been realized. The band 
.should play at football, basketball 
and baseball games, pep meetings, 
convocations and graduation exer- 
cises, spring open air concerts, special 
concerts with paid admission, dedi- 
cation exercises, receptions, spring 
tours of the band and radit. broad- 
casting by the band, besides the regu- 
lar rehearsals which ought to come 
at least twice a week. 

Dr. Buckton of Columbia Univer- 
sity states in his thesis College and 
University Hands that bandmasters 
when questioned concerning the matter 
of college credit for band work felt 
that college credit should be allowed 
for band work as a free elective on all 
courses of the college and university, 
and that the amount of credit to be 
given for band work should he ba.sed 
on time spent at rehearsal, since it is 
primarily educational. "Two hours 
per week spent at rehearsal eighteen 
weeks should receive one semester 
hour of credit. This would mean that 
from four to eight hours of credit 
could l)e earned in hand wcirk depend- 
ing on whether or not it may be sub- 
stituted for military drill."

to supply gravestones esthetically de-

The object of the campaign is to bring 
the craftsman and the customer in 
closer touch, and thus eliminate the 
importation of the cheaper, ready-

strong coffin are certainly a comfort 
on a stormy night. 

If in doubt as to whether a man is a 
freshman or an upperclassman, look 
at his clothes. The freshman is just 
beginning to wear the new suit he 
bought for his high school graduation, 
and the upper classman is still wearing 
the .same suit he left high .school in.

Xse college undergraduates will testify that, as a rule they are not conscious 
f Zvimr any such gifts. They are determined most frequently in the choice

in the very process of performing it. 

letharav Caused by Loose Kleetive System 

President Eliot base's the further a.ssumption that effort d<K.s ""t need to

Some of the instruments loaned to the 
band are in poor condition, even re- 
pairs will not leave some of them 
worth playing. Outfitting the band in 
the most inexpensive but good-Umking 
uniforms would cost $500 to .say noth- 
ing of the expense involved in their 
maintenance. Where is the m<mey 
coming from? The band is not sup- 
ported financially by the student 
body. Twenty-five cents added to the 
.student activities taxes would not 
impoverish a single student, and 
would add $250 to the band treasury 
annually. The hand could earn 
enough money by giving concerts to 
defray other expenses. 

The administration has .seen the 
need of a supervisor of the college 
musical organizations and has added 
to its college staff an instructor of 
music who is only too willing and 
anxious to get a real college band 
organized. Now is the time for the 
.student body to take advantage of 
such an opportunity, and do something 
alK)ut it. Let's get a band organized\

of the Collegian has made the dear old

paradox of his earnestness and Ids

his "flivver." 

Yet how can one harmonize this 
irritating mixture in the .student with 
the satisfying blend of seriousness and 
humour making up the notable per 
sonalities in books and in life. The 
answer is that our undergraduates are 
mortifying, nay, positively infamous 
in their pa.ssion for securing a "posi- 
tion" in the home-town bank after 
graduation, and ingeniously flippant 
about the position in which the inner

Resuming gridiron relations with 
the royal purple for the first time 
since 1926, when the "little re<l 
machine" was crushed in a 20-0 rout 
by a powerful Williams eleven, .State's 
stalwarts will pit themselves against 
another dangerous Williams ("ollege 
team on Alumni Field, this Saturday 
at 2.30 p.m. Both teams will he well 
equippiKi in the way of man-power 
and hardened veterans. 

('oach ('aldwell has been having 
difficulties with his lineup until now. 
(3ohendet, the regular center on the 
1933 eleven, was forced out uf practice 
by injuries as was his teammate 
(Jendar. By Saturday, however, one 
of these men will prohal ly answer the 
o|>ening whistle at the piv»»t post. 
Brown a veteran of the past three 
years will undoubtedly fill one of the 
flanking positions, while either ()' 
Reilly, Cantwell, Rogers or Kroll will 
attempt to bolster the strength of the 
forward wall. 

The Statesmen are not quite so 
badly off in the matter of a line, since 
many capable veterans will again see 
service. Captain Paul Schaffner, a 
left guard, is handily holding down his 
berth, while Roger I^eavitt, another 
veteran, stands out as an able reserve 
for the same position. Ed Bernstein, 
a flashy 180-pound sophomore, is 
leading the race for the job at right 
guard. Dave Rossiter, another sopho- 
more, will probably be in the pivot 
position, with Vic (iuzowski and Red 
Mulhall, both veterans, controlling 
the tackle assignments. 

Both teams are weak in flankmen,

Jack Sturtevant and Emil Koenig, 
both converted centers, will probably 
start in State's backfield as quarter- 
back and fullback, respectively. Stew-

date, with Consolatti, who was under- 
study to Bush for two years, being tlie 
more experienced of the trio. 

Of the forty-eight men on the squad 
eleven are lettermen, but because of 
the necessity for new material and the 
resultant shift of players, only four 
who start the opening game will be 
experienced in their positions. Paul 
Schaffner, captain and left guard will 
again see service, as will Vic Cuzowski 
and Bill Mulhall, both tackles. Stew- 
art will be the fourth meml)er of this 
veteran group. 

With Sturtevant and Koenig leav- 
ing the center of the line vacant, 
Coach Taulje has l)een very fortunate 
in being able to find a capable man 
for the pivot job in the person of 
Dave Rossiter, a former Maiden High 
School and Rents Hill football lumin- 
ary. Rossiter, a sophomore, is wel I 
taking care of his duties, while being 
closely pressed for the position by 
Rod Cumniings, and Al (]ricius, a 
sophomore. The Maiden boy is large 
enough to cover his territory, well, 
and experience<l enough to play at a 
post left void of veteran material. 
However, he will not be left greatly 
unaided, for he will be flanked on 
both sides by better than average 

Captain Schaffner, Pete Nietupski 
and Roger Leavitt, letter winners of a 
year ago, are available, and there is 
another capable looking sophomore 
guard, Ed Bernstein, of Springfield, 
who seems slated to see plenty of 
action this year. 

With the graduation of Smith and 
Mountain, last June, the wings were 
left vacant of all experienced men ex- 
cept for Terry Adams who saw some 
action during last year's campaign. 
Bill Davis, however, center on last 
year's undefeated hoop team, has been 
showing to good advantage to date, 
and seems a likely starter at one of 
the wing posts. There are about a 
half dozen other promising candidates 
amongst whom are IjOU Bongiolatti, 
Willard Boynton, and Freddy Lehr. 




President Hugh P. Baker 

Addresses First Convocation 


Liiyliiu «f CoriMT SloiH'w is S«*l for 
NoveiiilMT li 


(£0'e^ Vlew0 

In welcominK the new faculty mem- 
bers and students to Massachusetts 
State CoHeRe. President Baker pointed 
out. in his address September 19 in 
Bowker Auditorium, marking the 
official opening of the sixty -seventh 
, oUege year, at the convocation, the 
„ecessitv of progress educationally 
and spiritually as well as physically in 
its development of Massachusetts 

State College. 

"Evidences of progress being made 
physically in the sound up-building of 
the college are the new buildings 
C.oodell Library and Thatcher Hall 
the reconstruction of heating lines, the 
moving of the Horticultural Barn to 
become a ward building and a part of 
the infirmary group, the remodeling of 
the Hatch Barn to become a small 
animal house, the completion of Alum- 
ni Field, and the beginning, at least, 
of a new athletic field for women." 
indicated the President. 

•While 1 am greatly interested in 
this physical progress, I am really 
much more cc.ncerned that we shall 
progress at Massachusetts State edu- 
cati..nally and spiritually. 1 should be 
unhappy in my work with you if 1 
felt that this period in the life of the 
College would be indicated, as college 
history is told, as a period of physical 
progress only." 

■'During the past year, three im- 
portant committees have been making 
studies of what might be termed our 
•educational situation' with the objec- 
tive of determining what is the right 
educational future for the college," 
|)r Baker stated, while making public 
recognition of the college's appreci- 
ation of the work of these committees. 
••In addition to committee investi- 
gation the most careful consideration 
18 l>eing given the general teaching 
situation to the end that the college 
may eventually have a leaching force 
second to none in the type of institu- 
tions represented by M.S.C." 

Expressing the desire that there be 
progress spiritually, President Baker 
said, in part. "1 want you to recognize 
the importance of the things of the 
spirit that you may learn the truth 
and that the truth may make you free. 
Your education here will be unsatis- 
factory unless you develop a satisfying 
faith in Cod and man." 

That there is constant change in the 
ecomimic and social life .)f today and 
that the needs for meeting these 
changes are "clear thinking, sane un- 
derstanding, and fair and hontBl de- 
cisions, which in turn demand wider 
education opportunities for all." was 
brought out during the address. 

In conclusion the President stated 
and commented upon what he con- 
sidered some rather important rules of 
the c*)llege game at M.S.C. Some of 
these are to be recognized as truisms, 
,)thers have shown their value because 
t,f years of testing in college living. 

i. Have effective student govern- 
ment in student affairs. 

2. Ketain right living relationships. 
;j. Do not assume unnecessary hand- 

4 Recognize the niceties of life. 

Exercises for the laying of the 
corner stones of (ioodell Library and

will be held on November 3 at 10 
o'clock, according to plans announced 
by Dr. Hugh P. Baker, president of 
the college. A program is being pre- 
pared in cooperation with a committee 
of the alumni association composed of 
Ralph F. Taber of West Newton, 
chairman; Ceorge C. Hubbard of 
Sunderland. Louis W. Ross of New- 
ton Highlands, architect of the dormi- 
tory; and Ceorge E. Emery, assistant 
alumni .secretary and college field 

State officials generally will be in- 
vited to the, according to Dr. 
Baker. 'I'he Emergency Public Works 
commission has already accepted an 
invitation to be present in a body. It 
is expected that many alumni will 
be on hand in the morning for the 
program. In the afternoon guests of 
the affair will be invited to attend the 
varsity football game with Amherst 
('ollege on Alumni Field.

Separated into two distinct factions, 
v^ilh an impenetrable barrier between, 
ill, Student Council faced a paralyzing 
d,;iillock during its meeting Wednes- 
day night. 

It all started when Mr. W. Waldron 
■;jr), arose, desperately clutching a 
(luorknob, and reported in a stirring 
oration that all means of exit were 
jUt off. He emphasized the probable 
luliiri' of the (^"!nnn<'il if it were not 
missed within a few weeks. 

President R. Semerad '35, immedi- 
ately grasping the awful significance 
of the situation, sprang into action and 
appointed Mr. R. F^verest '37, chair- 
nuiri of a committee of ways and means 
to get out). A recess of five minutes 

The meeting reconvened and Ever- 
est reported that there were three 
windows, all far above terra firma, 
,,rul an absence of anything suggesting 
lire escapes. This report was unani- 
mously, if reluctantly, approved and 

At this point a knock (from the 

outside!) announced the arrival of 
J. Doyle '37 who immediately took an 
independent stand from the other 
members. Pleased at this demonstra- 
tion of independence, President Seme- 
rad appointed Doyle a committee of 
one to carry out the investigation with 
a different perspective on the question. 
He applied for a short leave-of-absence 
which was speedily granted. Return- 
ing with somebody's trunk as the first 
step in the .solution, lie succeeded in 
forcing open the transom and presented 
his report. He suggested that the 
gentlemen rise to a higher level and 
find the necessary solution. This re- 
port was accepted unanimously and 
the organization proceeded to file out 
(the transom, of course) by order of 
seniority. It was at this point that 
the serious split occurred. In a further 
consultation of the senior members, 
Mr. R. MacDowell '35 suggested that 
the key be inserted in order to again 
combine the two factions. This idea 
was adopted and harmony restored.

"Queen of the Broom" Great Help 

To Financially Embarrased Students 

Union undergraduates were pro- 
tected by a regal janitress during a 
period of twenty-four years (1862-8(5). 
Like many monarchs, she was the 
possessor of a string of titles. They 
were: Elizabeth, Marie, 'tjueen of the 
Broom," and Union 'Scrub.' 

In the files of the (iraduate ('ouncil, 
rest several photographs in.scribcd: 
"Elizabeth." These likeness»*s portray 
•A plea.sant, coarse, full fan-, made 
large by a well-setback hair lines of 
unkempt dark tresses. 

Elizabeth, to be sure, was a good 
natured, pleasant being. She was 
always ready to perform a favor. If a 
boy needed a few dollars to k«H'p him 
going until his ship came in, he could 
be sure that "Scrub" would lend him 
some fn)m her meager earnings. 

The March 1880 i.ssue of The Con 
eordiensis, referring to "tin- quet^n of 

the broom" as Marie, says that she 
was both a philo.sopher and a theolo 
gian, and that one needed but to start 
her t)n any subject to talk as if she 
were wound up. The account con- 
tinues hy stating that she wa.s the 
freshman's protecting genius, and wot- 
to the upperclassuK'n who abus«'d him 
in her presence. If by chance anything 
happened to a frosh without the possi- 
bility of her intervt-ntiun, Marie 
would have said, "Poor devil, 1 am 
sorry for him." 

It is dubious, however, if the boys 
ever fell s«)rry for her, since it was a 
habit of the hoys to leave the coal 
scuttles conveniently at the head of 
the stairs, or to stack a r(M>m with hay, 
and, moreover, it was a sin to re<,eive 
Potter's prize for a neat room. It 
would seem that the good "queen of 
the broom" had plenty of work to do 
and to do with a smile.

The society of Sigma Xi, siientific 
reaeaich b«Kly announced a grant in 
aid of research to Dr. H. K- UeSiha, 
profesHor of psychology at Massachu- 
setts State College. The announce- 
ment was made by Dean Edward 
Kllery of Union College, secretary of 
Sigma Xi. 

The grant has been made, according 
to Dr. DeSilva. to promote research 
work which he has undertaken in a 
study of the correlation of body 
voltage changes with basal metabo- 
lism by gasometric method. This 
work is directly in line with the work 
which Dr. DeSilva has been doing in 
studying body voltage in order to use 
it as a measure of body metabolism. 
Dr. DevSilva, who is in charge of 
the psychology laboratory at the 
college, has developed some highly 
unique methods for measurement of 
these extremely low voltages by the 
use of vacuum tube apparatus.

was finally appropriated in the Sup- 
plementary State Budget to be u.Hed 
in finishing the field. 

Work was undertaken under the 
direction of Mr. Theoren L. Warner 
with the aid of twenty men, most of 
whom were State students enrolled at 
the summer school. With the addi- 
tional use of a steam shovel, bull-dozer, 
and five trucks, rapid progress was 
made in ditching, draining, filling, 
leveling, and grading the field. 

With the later addition of $2,000 
from the Athletic Trust Fund, which 
had already supplied $l,r)0O for th- 
fence, the work was continued. That 
it took approximately 30,000 man- 

hours to move 10,000 cubic yards of 
subsoil, and 5,000 of topsoil, lay 7,000 
feet of tile, and sow 1,000 pounds of 
grass seed were some of the statistics 
revealed when the books were clo.sed.

cellar of the new infirmary ward is 
being excavated by a steam shovel. 

The main steam turntl, measuring 
5x6 feet on the inside, which was 
begun the ( rst of August, is poured 
for nearly half of its total length of 
2008 feet. Later, the main tunnel 
which extends from the power plant 
to a point across from the waiting 
station on the main highway, will be 
coupled to a 350 foot extension to 
Kast Experiment Station. Another 
line is being constructed from the 
power plant to the Drill Hall, a dis- | 
tance of about 1600 feet. This tunnel 
which is 3 X 2 1-2 feet will be later 
extended to the Memorial Building. 
In the tunnel proper, the main 
steam lines will be on the left wall 
while the preparations are being made 
for the eventual installation of electric 
telephone and clock lines on the right 
side. The steam mains are welded 
throughout the length of the tunnel. 
From the Goessmann Laboratory to 
the waiting station, the top of the 
tunnel will be level with the surface 
of the ground and will provide a walk 
which will Iw always dry and free 
from snow.

fourth season. The association has 
proved its tremendous worth as a 
factor in the artistic growth and de- 
velopment of our college town and in 
the past three years of deepest de- 
pression the association has brought 
to Amherst, at virtually nominal price, 
ten concerts of the world's most re-

The campaign for membership to 
the association for the coming year 
began Monday, October 1, and will 
close this Saturday, October 6, at 
six p.m. After that time, no member- 
ships will be received until the follow-

to the concerts, and no tickets will be 
sold at the door.

pastor of the First Congregational 
Church of Springfield will deliver the 
sermon and preside at the forum fol- 
lowing the worship service. Everyone 
interested is urged to attend. Re- 
freshments will be served. 

This is a new venture on the Mass. 
State campu.s and will be a regular 
Sunday evening event. In order to 
provide more accessible opportunity 
for worship for students, the protestant 
ministers of Amherst, with the cabi- 
nets of the Y.M.C.A. and the Y.W. 
C.A. are cooperating in planning the 
student vespers. These services will 
replace the Sunday evening young 
people's groups which formerly have 
been held in the various churches of 


Popular Annual Kvent Schediil«>d 
for Ortober 27 

Saturday, October 27th, has been 
designated as the annual Dad's Day 
at the Massachusetts State College. 
The entire program has been arranged 
by students, and the events of the day 
are in charge of a committee headed 
by Charles Elliot, assisted by Ellen 
Connery, Ruth Lindquiat, Elizabeth 
Perry, Bernard Dole, Harlow Her- 
manson, and R. Holman Wood of the 
class of 1935; Elva Britton, Prancar 
Morgan, Hamilton Gardner, and Cal- 
vin Hannum of the claas of 1936; 
Elinor Stone, Leroy Clark and Chester 
Conant of the class of 1937. 

The program includes a military 
exhibit in the morning, and an in- 
formal faculty reception in the Mem- 
orial building. At noon, and in some 
cases, in the evening, the dads will be 
guests for dinner at the various fra- 
ternity and sorority houses. In the 
afternoon is the State- Worcester Tech 
game to which all the dads are invited 
free of charge. Between the halves 
the freshman-sophomore six man rope- 
pull will be held. 

The annual Dad's Day show starts 
at 7:30 in Bowker auditorium. Fiach 
fraternity and sorority is to contribute 
a five-minute skit and the program 
promises to be one of rare amusement 
and interest both to the partici- 
pants and to the spectators 

I.,aHt year about four hundred dads 
were guests on our campus, and be- 
cause of the increased enrollment even 
more are expected this year.

eleven fraternities on this campus this 
week, following the two weeks of 
rushing under the rules of the Inter-

of men pledging various fratemitiea, 
one hundred and thirty-three, was 
divided as follows: One hundred and

The results of last year's fraternity 
pledging season was almost identical 
with those of the past week; one

about fifty-six percent of the male 
enrollment participating in the pledg-

Hearrh lor Illiihway Safety 


Interest shown by the governor's 
committee on street and highway 
safety in the preliminary work of Dr. 
DeSilva on mea.surements of efficiency 
in automobile drivers has resulted in 
the allocation of funds to the depart- 
ment of psychology at the Massachu- 
setts State College for the underUking 
of an ERA project on public safety. 
Five trained men, an electrical engin- 
eer, a radio engineer, a mechanical 
engineer, and two master mechanics 
have been selected to work with Dr. 
DeSilva in the design, construction 
and operation of scientific apparatus 
for the measurement of skill and 
efficiency of the human subject in the 
operation of motor vehicles. 

Preliminary information gathered at 
the Eastern States Exposition at 
Springfield is now being critically 
examined and interpreted, and the 
Registry of Motor Vehicles is follow- 
ing the work with interest. The de- 
velopment of apparatus that would 
accurately examine an applicant for a 
license to operate a motor vehicle 
would. Dr. DeSilva points out, par- 
tially eliminate the possibility of 
human error in the test, and the ex- 
amination could be given on a uniform 
basis throughout the state. A acien- 
tiffc instrument capable of correctly 
determining the skill of an applicant 
would save much time and money for 
the Registry and would result in more 
effort being exerted in the enforcement 
of laws pertaining to the operation of 
aotomobiles upon the highways. 

The object in view in the construc- 

tion of the apparatus is to as nearly as 
possible reproduce actual road condi- 
tions in the laboratory. Winding 
roads, curves on grades, ditches, nar- 
row bridges, undi-rpasses, darknc*ss, 
poor visibility, reckless and drunken 
driving must be effectively portrayed 
to test the skill and judgment of the 
subject. Dr. DeSilva has made tenta- 
tive plans and designs for apparatus 
to measure the speed of the subject in 
applying the brakes, his steering 
ability on a winding road, his cautious- 
ness and judgment of operation, and 
his degree of night blindness, that is, 
his ability to see against the head- 
lights of oncoming automobiles. Mov- 
ing pictures are to be used in testing 
the subject's ability to avoid accidents 
and to meet emergencies. Testa are 
being devised to measure the indi- 
viduals skill in the estimation of the 
speed of other vehicles, and the in- 
troduction of a new color-blindness 
test, and a gauge of tunnel-vision 
will be included in the work. 

Apparatus worth over five thousand 
dollars was constructed under CWA 
and ERA projects carried on by the 
psychology department in the college 
year 1933-34. The laboratory which 
was established last year on the second 
floor of Stockbridge hall is now com- 
pletely filled, and the instruments are 
difficult of access at the present time. 
The appropriation of funds for carry- 
ing on the latest project, in conjunc- 
tion with the increased enrollment of 
students in the department, has re- 
sulted in plana being drawn up for 
the allocation of space for a larger 
laboratory in the basement.

f\»ll!<i|>i«-|l«»IIN ily it.H AI»H«'Ilf« 

During the past three years we have watched a rather painful .situation 
developing at thi.s college, a disintegration and a growing disinterest in the 
various undergraduate activities associated with the college, in the past 
three years while this hreaking down of college spirit has been taking place 
on this campus, there has l)een a determined effort on the part of the adminis- 
tration to improve both the physical equipment and the professorial staff of 
the college, in order to make Massachusetts State College a more efficient and 
more noted institution of learning. Among the undergraduates there has 
been an almost complete di.sappearance of the spirit of the old graduates 
"We are proud to be students at M.S.C. and will do our best to make it a 

better institution." 

Extra-curricular activities play a great part in the influence a college has 
upon the rest of the country - and it is in these fields that the situation has 
become almost deplorable. The skeleton of the former large college band is 
struggling to get organized at least once before the football season is over; 
about one-fifth of the student group are interested enough to attend the pep 
rally before the opening football game; only a handful of students brave the 
wind and rain to support our varsity football team Williams, while 
on the Riime afternoon sorority houses are crowded with bridge players and 
fraternity houses with sleeping students. Positions in the extra-curricular 
activities as Collegian, Debating, Dramatics, (llee Clubs, Orchestra are not 
being contested for by the most capable undergraduates in each field. Class 
organization has become farcial. A class banquet is a faint dream from the 
dim past. Interest in the elections of student leaders is painfully lacking 
in short the majority of the students are "just going to college," to them 
M.S.C. is a place to spend four lazy years, and to take enough courses to 
obtain a degree. It is this great majority of students to whom we refer as 
"Those who take everything they can get out of the college and return noth- 
ing." It is this group of students which stays away from football games, 
class meetings, extra-curricular activities and then leads the criticism against 

the student affairs. 

The Rniid (?) 
At this moment, Massachusetts State College has the questionable dis- 
tinction of being one of the few colleges in New England not represented by 
a college band. We believe that a college band is a vital instrument in the 
attempt to build up "State spirit," and in concordance with this belief the 
administration has created a "new deal" in the band situation at this college. 
The indifferent interest in the band has been blamed on many reasons: poor 
leadership, inferior instruments, no uniforms, no incentives such as trips with 
football teams, and finally — an absolute lack of any semblance of organiza- 

The administration has done much this fall to assist the students in the 
organizati<m of a real band: a full-time instructor of music has been em- 
ployed, an experienced bandmaster will drill the band twice a week; many 
new instruments have l)een purchased, C^olonel Romeyn has cooperated 
greatly by suggesting that military credit be given to band members; and the 
Student Senate is prepared to use .student funds for the purchase of the greatly- 
needed uniforms, provided - and this is most imp<)rtant the college band 
becomes sufficiently organized. A college of one thou.sand students and not 
represented by a college band, is to us, an alarming and deplorable situation. 
How much longer are students and friends of M.S.C. to smile sadly when 
questioned about the band. We have had good bands in the past at this 
college. We have undergraduates in this college now to make a crack band. 
The administration has done its part to create a band. The question is, has 
the student body enough college spirit to do its part! We believe it has. 

Sliideiit Kleeti«>iis 
If the band situation in the past has been deplorable, the organization 
during the past year has been a joke. The that could get a quorum of 
meml>ers at any mcjeting last year was an exception. We believe that there 
are other factors to be gained in college be.sides knowledge from books. Most 
college students have the wrong idea about politics, few realize what an im- 
portant part politics play in our daily lives and that the undergraduates will 
be summoned in a few years to elect and p<'rhaps to serve themselves, as 
officials of the public welfare. 

How can you expect the poor working man in the mill to elect capable 
governmental officers when supposedly intelligent college students allow 
organizations to In-come deplete, and take no interest in class elections. If a 
class ever is to be trained in the responsibility of selected, capable leaders, 
it should be taught the ♦irst year. Yet the freshmen class last year, held bui 
one class meeting for the election of officers. After n;peated attempts to get 
enough students to make a quorum to nominate candidates for offices, 
the junior class adopted the rather dangerous and un.satisfactory plan of 
allowing the present class officers to nominate the candidates. What does 
this mean to you'.' To us, it means that the student at M.S.C. has not yet 
matured enough to require a of class respon.sibilily and duty and he 
does not care if his class ever meets or who are the leaders. 

Few students reflect on a candidates capabilities for membership in the 
student government and yet this organization is entru.sted with the entire

In our opinion . . . 

A faculty member, in introducing a 
guest speaker, remarked that the 
gentleman had a group of people 
working for him nearly as large as the 
student body, and that these people 
appeared to be much the same as the 
student body. Reinaerd's first thought 
was — may the powers above take 
pity on the taxpayers, but when he 
learned that of 700 pieces of silver 
used by student diners at the Cafeteria 
in the last three years only 258 re- 
mained, he shook his head and said, 
"and may someone take pity on the 
public treasury also." 

We'll trade ... 

The Student Government Associa- 
tion of the U. of Alabama is conduct- 
ing a drive for a set of uniforms which 
will be presentable when the university 
band appears in public. The president 
of the organization remarked that th« 
uniforms were in such bad condition 
last year that the student body could 
not help but be ashamed when the 
band went on the field. Knowing how 
they spend money in Alabama in 
comparison to Mass. State, we'd .say 
that the disreputable, cast-off, uni- 
forms would probably make our band 
look like a new organization.

If a fraternity does one thing, it 
keeps its brothers in touch with the 
world (too touchy st)me say). A key 
man in the dining hall, a military 
major, had not appeared for work: 
suddenly, a brother dashed into the 
kitchen and breathlessly announced 
that X could not get in to work. 
"What's the big idea'.'" demanded the 
boss. Slowly and solemnly came the 
answer someone stole his breeches. 
And the boss, speechless (with laugh- 
ter), merely said "Oh."

My dear sir: 

As the representative of over 364 
manufacturing jewelers catering to 
fraternities in the leading colleges of 
the country, I have been commissioned 
to approach you about a delicate 
matter of interest to us. As perhaps 
you know, though our sales have held 
up surprisingly well during the ma- 
jority of the depression, of late they 
have declined alarmingly. Advance 
reports of activities throughout the 
country indicate that we may expect 
the same trend this year. 

To get down to brass tacks, here is 
what we are suggesting: could you 
through your column help promote a 
frame of mind favorable for us. Of 
course nothing direct need be said. 
For instance, you might write a 
column on The Value of the Fraternity, 
followed by The Significance of My 
Fraternity Pin. These are only sug- 
gestions but 1 hope that we can get 
together and come to terms. 
Very truly yours,

plans of the Association will be pre- 
sented and discussed. The sev.ral

the association will be present, i'he 
meeting will be informal and light 
refreshments will be served. 

In a letter recently received fiom 
Palestine, Stanley A. Ginsburgh re- 
ports that he has journeyed all the 
way to Jerusalem "to gather material 
for my dissertation"; this certainly 
qualifies him for inclusion in the "long 
distance study" group of M.SC. 
students. Ginsburgh is a graduate 
student in the department of econnm- 
ics, history and sociology. 

All those who have tried out for

All students in the division of hor- 
ticulture interested in planning ex 
hibits for this show are urged tu 
attend the meeting which will be 
held at 7.30 p.m. tonight in Femald

Tragedies of Riizoo Night . . . 

Our sympathy goes out to the frosh 
co-ed who had a date for the informal 
with one of the boxers on the program. 
The boxer, poor fellow, lost all con- 
tact with the world shortly after 
entering the ring, and the co-ed had 
to rush madly about trying to get a 
substitute date for the first social 
event of the year. 

I received this letter in a recent 
mail. After the first flash of indigna- 
tion at the insolence of it - the 
questioning of my integrity — I re- 
solved to make public the whole 
matter. Readers may see for them- 
selves the forces which try to influence 
the press, and in particular a column 
which strives to discuss impartially 
matters of local interest. May I give 
my answer, and incidentally the guid- 
ing star of this column: "Thousands 
of words for the defence of truth, but 
not one paragraph for the commercial 

But the whole matter brought the 
state of the fraternity to my eye. I 
noticed the remark of a columnist in 
a nearby college that these organiza- 
tions were undergoing national criti- 
cism and his opinion that state 
college chapters were the cause. I 
remembered President Baker's counsel 
in his opening address of the year 
let the freshmen consider the frater- 
nity carefully. And I listened to the 
best of the upperclassmen's comments 
during rushing week. I have come to 
the conclusion painful, I a.ssure you 
that the fraternity, for which I have 
the profoundest affection for in the 
idea, is on the skids. Now, no sane 
man can doubt the value of such 
groups in an ideal condition; and 
therefore the matter is of great 

Compari.son is always salutary. Con- 
sider the men's club. Of 
course the F^ are a queer folk 
they drink tea, are fond of wandering 
about in the noon day heat in sun 
helmets, and .still 

A class in ballroom dancing will be 
held every Tuesday evening in the 
Memorial building if enough students 
are interested. Mr. Shearer, a gradu- 
ate of the Arthur Murray Sch«>ol of 
Dancing in New York, and a specialist 
in the latest college dance steps, will 
conduct the classes, assisted by his 
dancing partner. The weekly charge 
is twenty-five cents, including a 4.> 
minute dancing class, followed by an 
hour of informal dancing. Are you 
interested? You will be approached 
soon in regard to enrollment in the 
dancing class! 

Well, there's the idea. Now for its 
application. During the first week of 
college the freshman could be wel- 
comed at the fraternity by a fishy 
handshake and a silent five minute 
stare at the section of wallpap«r 
directly behind his head. Next the 
neophyte should receive this letter:

117 Freshmen Elect Football; 

Frosh Victors In Razoo Night 

OlIiefN ChuoHe Cfomm Country, 
Swiniininilt uud Socrer 

With football receiving the prefer- 
ence of more than fifty percent of the 
frtshmen class, the freshmen physical 
education program for this year opened 
auspiciously last week, with the issu- 
ing of equipment for all sports. Of 
the 225 men students in the class of 
19H8, one hundred and seventeen 
elected football for their fall sport. 

Ireshman football will be run ac- 
cording to the plans which have been 
followed for the past few years. The 
fifhi few weeks of practice will be de- 
voted to conditioning exercises and 
the drilling on fundamentals. Prac- 
tice will be held twice a week under 
the supervision of varsity coach Melvin 
Taul)e, who will be assisted by mem- 
Ihts of the present varsity team. 

.After the men have been rounded 
into shape, the squad will be split up 
into teams and a round robin tourna- 
ment will be held. Each team will 
meet every other team in the league 
until one eleven has been crowned 
fre.shman champs. The yearling foot- 
ball season will close with a contest 
against the stalwarts of the class of '37. 

Cross country is also taking care of 
a goodly portion of the yearlings. 
Working under the guidance of Walt 
Stepat, crack miler and captain of 
the varsity team, who is assisting 
Coach Derby, groups are plodding 
over the freshman course every after- 
noon. Those who elected to take cross 
country work, are required to practice 
at least three times a week. 

As yet no definite schedule has been 
mapped out for the 1938 team, but it 
seems very likely that numerous in- 
formal meets will be held. Amherst 
freshmen and junior varsity teams as 
well as the State jayvees will probably 
provide the competition, and if the 
frosh outfit shows itself to be strong 
enough, the New England Intercol- 
legiates may be entered upon its

sity Sport at State 

Having successfully negotiated the 
tides of one season as a trial sport, 
swimming will make its debut next 
January as a varsity sport represent- 
ing the Massachusetts State College. 
The schedule for this season's team 
lists six meets. 

As yet no official call has been 
Ls.sued for candidates for the team, 
hut a goodly number of last year's 
stand-bys may be seen working out 
almost daily even at this early date. 
The opening meet, with Bowdoin, will 
he held here on January 9th. Three 
days later, Wesleyan's natators will 
come here for another contest, and on 
January 19, the Statesmen will journey 
t<) Worcester to take on the Worcester 
Tech team. This meet will hold special 
interest for every member of the team, 
a.s Worcester is the Alma Mater of 
t^oadi Rogers. Victory over the 
Engineers would be sweet for some. 

Th State team will enjoy a short 
■^spit*' after this, and will not see 
action again until February 7th when 
Connecticut State will be met at 
Storr.s. On February 12 Williams will 
Pfoviti<: opposition at Williamstown, 
snd on February 19 Trinity will come 
°^^^ >n a meet which will mark the 
close ,.'■ the season. 

State has some experienced and 
'iltely prospects in Tirrell, Eldridge, 
f'ratt Clark, Hodder, Cutter, Welcher, 
^"vey, Libby, and Grant. Under the 
^xcell. nt coaching of Joe Rogers these 
■•'•'n >hould form the nucleus of a 
■''^fon>' team. 

^f aptain has been elected, yet. 
'"e riianagerial reins, however, have

Defeat In Rope Pull Aveni^ed by 
Vit-torieN in Bouttt and Ruwh 

Rising up in vengeance and repaying 
the defeat in the rope pull, the class of 
1938 emerged victorious in the annual 
Razoo Night affairs held last Friday 
evening. Winning the boxing and 
wrestling bouts by a score of 21 1-2 
points to the sophomores' 12 1-2, the 
first-year men went out into the lead 
in the first part of the contest. Then, 
in the nightshirt scrap the freshmen 
also carried off the verdict this time 
with the count of 147 to 122, thus 
making the final total 168 1-2 to 
134 1-2. 

The whole event showed an unex- 
pected amount of class spirit, the 
freshmen breaking up the traditional 
sophomore lineup and rushing the 
second-year men. The climax of the 
evening was the attempts of the vic- 
torious freshmen to celebrate their win 
by ringing the chapel bell, only to be 
repulsed from the chapel by the sturdy 
Senate defense. 

BoutM Provide Kxritement 

Amidst much noise and the usual 
freshman cheer which is oftentimes 
designated to that enlightened part of 
New York City, the activities of the 
evening got under way in the Cage at 
seven o'clock. A boxing bout between 
the red-headed mustached John Mer- 
rill Sinclair of the class of 1937 and a 
first year man disguised under the 
sobriquet "Killer" Lichtenstein started 
the trouble. This bout was fast and 
furious and there is still some doubt in 
the minds of the audience whether 
Referee Hunter declared a war on the 
two participants or whether he was 
just excited by the superfluity of red. 
At any rate, he came close to ending 
the battle by knocking down both men 
on a number of occasions. However, 
the judges decided the exhibition was 
even and the official verdict was a 

SopltM Even Se«»re 

But the next event provided a de- 
cision. A sophomore. Hardy, took on 
Harry L. Metaxas in a grunt and 
groan bout with the result that said 
Mr. Hardy emerged the winner over 
the 207 pound Metaxas and the sophs 
went into the lead. A little variety 
again brought boxing into the ring 
and this time the class of '38 made the 
count even when Friedman took the 
decision right out of the hands of 
Barr '37. Once the frosh got going 
they did admirably. Silverman '38 
won a victory over Toder '37 in the 
135-pound class in wrestling. 


Gehringer '38 found himself in the 
way of a punch from Brennan '37 and 
when he woke up the score was again 
tied. Brennan was so satisfied with 
his prowess that he challenged the 
whole frosh class. One '38-er, Grimard, 
rushed to the battle and the frosh did 
the cheering. The last bout on the 
program ended favorably for the frosh 
and the first part of the contest was 

Fr«>Mh VIrturiouN in Melee 

The second part of the contest, held 
on the military field, started at 8:15. 
After a wild exhibition of conflict and 
turmoil the war was terminated. The 
spoils of war were counted. Thirty- 
six sophomores cooled their heels in 
the pen while the frosh kept the 
haberdashers profits down by retain- 
ing the possession, or at least the 
major part, of 75 shirts. This chalked 
up 147 points for the freshmen. The 
second-year men were a little better 
in regards the dry goods capturing 82 
freshman shirts in various stages of 
ventilation while the sophs succeeded 
in keeping 25 freshmen in the pen. 
When the final count was made the 
frosh had amassed the total of 168 1-2 
points and the class of 1937 trailed 
with 134 1-2. But the sophomores are 
still looking forward to the six-man 
rope pull and the battle of the greased 
pole all in the unpredictable future.

the schedule was run last year, there 
will be four leagues of three teams

Sliding and slipping through the 
mud and water, the Royal Purple of 
Williams emerged victorious over the 
Maroon and White football forces last 
Saturday on Alumni Field, 12 to 7, 
after a game that was remarkable for 
the conditions under which it was 
played. For an opening game of the 
season for both teams, it provided 
some good football under the adverse 
weather conditions, it being only in 
the closing minutes of the game that 
Williams scored and wiped out the 
slim one-point State lead. 

This game, marking the first grid- 
iron encounter between Williams and 
the Statesmen since 1927, saw the 
Taubemen at a considerable disad- 
vantage because of their inability to 
use pass plays. Under more favorable 
playing conditions it seems certain 
that the Maroon and White would 
have accomplished much by virtue of 
the overhead heaving. As it was, pass 
after pass hit the receivers' hands only 
to bounce to the ground lM*cause of 
the impossibility of holding the muddy 
water-sogged ball. 

Rrilliant Kiekinf^ by Stewart 
Scoreless throughout the first half, 
the Maroon and White had the ad- 
vantage through the brilliant kicking 
of Johnny Stewart, who, time after 
time, sent the ball down the field for 
forty, fifty, and sixty yards. But the 
second half was a little different. 
Three times the lead changed hands. 
Williams, with Holmes carrying the 
ball, scored a touchdown in the third 
quarter, but the attempt for the extra 
point was unsuccessful. Halfway 
through the final pericxi a pass from 
Johnny Stewart to Bill Davis brought 
the ball across the line. Milhall made 
the extra point with difficulty and the 
Statesmen went into a lead of one 
point. This loomed large until Holmes 
conducted a march to the Maroon and 
White citadel. Forty yards on a 
series of rushes, the Purple star 
battered his way. With their backs 
against the wall, the Tauliemen held 
once and twice, but the greater weight 
of Williams on the water-soaked field 
was too much and Holmes crashed 
over for the winning score. Again

According to Professor Curry Hicks 
the number of tennis courts of this 
college will be increased next spring. 
A new court will be built near the 
old ones and hard-surfaced so that it 
will be possible to play on it just as 
soon as the snow will melt. 

The prospective addition is made 
possible through the accumulated in- 
terest of the Admiral Barber Fund 
which has also provided the present 

An attempt is also being made to 
get the Federal government to appor-

TuftN CuntrMt (hily llinnr Event 
of Week-end 

With the team having been selected 
after intensive competition. State's 
varsity harriers will swing into action 
for the first time this season, in a 
meet with the Tufts (College cross 
country team, this Saturday. The 
contest will be the only home athletic 
event of the week. 

During the course of last year's 
entire season, the Statesmen were de- 
feated in only one meet. The 1934 
team hopes to be able to better this 
mark, ('aptain Stepat, whose s<;nsa- 
tional running has been exhibited 
more than once before, will lead his 
teammates. Wally was undefeated in 
competition last season. 

Bob Murray, the holder of the 
course record, will be another one of 
the select seven. Ray Proctor, another 
veteran will also l)e in the grind, as 
will Bill Gillette, (lordon Bishop and 
Carl Dunker, both lettermen in 1933, 
will be amongst the starters. The 
seventh man on the team will be a 
sophomore, "Doc" Bryant, who dis- 
tinguished him.self as a freshman 
harrier and half miler. 

It is very evident that no colleges 
underrate the power of the M.S.t'.

College cross country squad came here 
to go over the varsity course in antici-

Repeat Victory Sought 
From Bowdoin Team 

Hoping to duplicate last year's in- 
spired 14-0 victory over the Polar 
Bears, the Massachusetts .State Col- 
lege grid forci's will attempt to cap- 
ture Bowdoin's football citadel in 
Brunswick, Maine this Saturday. The 
game will mark the o|M'ning of the 
football .Htui.Hon for the Maine contin- 

The Polar Bears usu^illy turn out a 
heavy and capable combine. ImhI 
year's eleven did not reach its heights 
until mid-s«'as<m, but once the Bear 
liecame arous4>d it became unlieatable. 
The result was that Bowdoin toppleP 
over strong opposition and finished 
amongst the small college leaders. 

The team which respresenled the 
Statesmen last Saturday will probably 
face the Bowdoin combine. The back- 
field consisting of Sturtevant. KiM'nig. 
Stewart, and Ctmsolatti are groomed 
for action. The line will have Rossiter 
at center, flanked by Nietupski and 
Schaffner who alternated with Bern- 
stein and I..eavitt. Guzowski and 
Mulhall will hold down the tackle 
berths, and Davis and Adams will be 
on the flanks. 

Bowdoin pres4>nts a dangerous 
ground attack as well as an aerial 
thieat. The Maine gridsters are heavy 
ground gainers, and Johnson, a back, 
can pass with the b<>st of them. 

Booters Swing Into 
Action Against W.P.I. 

Faced by heavy losses through 
graduation, the Maroon and White 
soccer players will open thin year's 
drive with a trip to Worcester Poly- 
technic Institute on Saturday. With

Coach Iwirry Briggs expects this year's 
squad to Ih> on <i par with last year's 
despite the absence of si'ven regulars. 
For the past three years, .State has 
won what has In-en the fipening game 
for lM>th si'h«>ols. Much will depend 
this time upon the ability of the 
Techmen to field a group of veteran 

Coach Briggs anticipates an offenae 
that will display more teamwork than 
last yt^ar although there are no stars 
such as Mackimmie or Kozlowski. 
.Saturday's forward line will consist of 
Don Hazelhuhn, junior letterman, or 
Jih; Kennedy, sophomore recruit, as 
center, flanked by two of last year's 
rc^gulars, Davidson and Hunter, as 
inside men. Two newcomers, Conway 
and Bielier will start as wings with 
Johnny Wood as relief man. 

Defensively, ('aptain Jimmy Black- 
burn at the key post of center half- 
hack and Red Wood at fullback will 
form the nucleus of the protecting 
division, ('urt ('lark is again slated 
for one halfback p<ist and Sweinberger, 
Becker, and Goddard are thrct> juniors 
battling for the other In-rth. The line- 
up will be completed with (George and 
Norris at fullback and goal. Mallf>ch 
and Turner are exptjcted to win their 
spurs at the last two positions during 
the game. 

.State foiled the attempt for the extra 

Williams used their weight advan- 
tage to good stead using plays through 
the guards and tackles. The Statesmen 
on the other hand didn't have the 
weight to match this type of play, 
but th<! Taubemen did wonders on 
defeast; while holding an excellent 
passing attack which was only stopped 
by the por)r weather conditions. .Stew- 
art was by far the outstanding player 
on the State team, his passing and 
kicking Innng the big .State threat and 
his pass to Bill Davis was the means 
of State scoring. 

FirMt Period 

The play in the first period was 
mostly in Williams territory. After 
the opening kickoff and an exchange 
of kicks, Stewart heaved a pass which 
was intended for Davis. Bill made a

Faculty Club Will Use Newly 
Renovated Stockbridge House 

IliMtorital Old Building U Re- 
paired fur Oci-iiputiuii 
Ah Clubr«Miiii 

After many years of decay and 
neglect, the old Stockbridge house has 
been completely remodeled and is now 
to be the meeting place of the newly 
organized Faculty Club. 

There hiiH been an ever increasing 
need for a suitable meeting place in 
which the social gatherings of the 
faculty members could be held. Pre- 
viously, meetings were held in Stock- 
bridge Hall and in the Memorial 
building, but buildings proved 
to be entirely iiiadequate. 

In the years following former Presi- 
dent Levi Stockbridge's occupancy of 
the dwelling, the old house slowly 
changed from "the house in which the 
harastKHl judge resided. On the south- 
ern wing it degenerates, after the 
manner of New Kngland farm houses, 
from a gracious colonial dignity into 
an open woodshed and barnly tag- 
ons," as Professor Rand described it 
in YesterdayH, to a decayed, tumble- 
down structure. 

The theme of the early American 
dwelling is adhered to as nearly as 
possible. Antique furniture given by 
the board of trustees, open-beamed 
ceilings, panelled walls, and eight and 
twelve-paned windows add a quiet 
dignity to the remodeled building. 
The library and reception rooms are 
furnished entirely with antique pieces. 
An original built-in cupboard with the 
usual clover-leaf shelves has been pre- 
served in the reception room. The 
fireplaces in the library and the dining 
room have been completely restored, 
and a massive fireplace of native stone 
has been constructed in the lounge. 
The ceilings of all rcMims except the 
old wood-shed, which has been con- 
verted into a game room, are low, and 
give a long, rambling effect to the 

Quarters f«)r the iluh hostess are 
located off the dining room, and the 
room beyond the old wood-shed has 
become the office of the club. The 
upstairs rooms are devoted to ladies 
and men's coal rooms. 

The following officers have been 
elected for the coming year: 

President, Dr. Hugh P. Baker; 
Vice-President, Professor Mildred 
Briggs; Treasurer, Professor Guy V. 

State Tax Commissioner 
Addresses Convocation 

Speaking on tax distrbution, Henry 
F. Ix)ng, State Commissioner of Cor- 
porations and Taxation, addressed 
the student body at convocation last 
'I'hursday. Commissioner Long spoke 
on the relation of the benefits received 
by the individual from the govern- 
ment. With these in mind the neces- 
sity of taxes should be expected rather 
than criticized by the citizens. He 
also stressed the necessity of having 
the burden reasonably well spread out 
so as to bring home to every person 
his dependence on government and 
the responsibility resting on him to 
support that government.

was perfect but the slippery pigskin 
slipped from his grasp on Williams 
19-yard line. Stewart then kicked to 
the Purple one-yard line and the kick 
was immediately returned. 

Purple Threat Stopped 

Opening the second stanza, Williams 
reeled off a series of rushes that gained 
them nine yards and Holmes punted to 
the State territory where the play re- 
mained during most of the period. A 
fumble by State was recovered by the 
Purple captain on the 29-yard line. 
This started a Williams assault led by 
Holmes which reeled off two first 
downs and brought the ball to the 
Maroon and White seven yard line. 
Holmes, on the next play, hit right 
tackle for five yards but two yards 
remained for a touchdown. But a 
Williams penalty changed matters. 
Holmes started away on a run around 
left end and appeared to be in the 
clear when a great tackle by Stewart 
brought him to the ground. A series 
of rushes and a pass lost the ball tor 
the Purple three yards short of the 

WillianiN SrureH 

Williams kicked off to start the 
second half and Stewart returned it. 
Salsich got off a beautiful kick that 
went dead on the State four yard line. 
Stewart again booted out of danger 
to the 33-yard marker. Then started 
the Williams touchdown march with 
Gordon, Stanley, and Holmes carrying 

the ball. A fifteen yard penalty, 
called on Williams only served to 
postpone the score as Holmes reeled 
off two rushes and the ball was over. 
Lamberton was unsuccessful in his try 
for the extra point from placement 
and the score stood Williams 6, 
State 0. 

Williams kicked off again and play 
aee-sawed over the 50-yard line for the 
rest of the period. 

State came back strong in the final 
session. Williams, starting off with 
substantial gains by Shipley and 
Holmes, went into reverse when a 
loose ball was fallen on by Fred I.«hr. 
Filipkowski hit the line for a yard or 
two, and Jack Koenig, who played a 
great game at his new position, 
carried the ball for five more. A five- 
yard Williams penalty gave State 
another first down on the 48-yard line. 
An unsuccessful Stewart to Sturtevant 
pass was followed by a punt. On the 
first down, the ball was returned via 
the kicking route and Consolatti was 
downed on his own 42-yard line. An- 
other pass which almost was success- 
ful and a five yard loss led up to a 
State punt. This punt from the toe 
of Johnny Stewart was an excellent 
piece of kicking. Standing on his own 
29-yard line Stewart received the pass, 
partly juggled the ball, and booted it 
over the heads of the inrushing 
Williams line. The ball travelled far 
down the field and came to rest 
inches from the goal line.

Announcement has been made by 
Cornelia Foley *36, president of ihe 
Intersorority Council, that the rules 
for sorority rushing have been revised. 
FVeshman girls will be rushed im- 
mediately after Thanksgiving this 
year instead of between semesters as 
was the custom previously. Another 
innovation pertains to transfers who 
will be rushed at the same time as 
the freshmen. Formerly transfers 
were rushed at any time during the 
year. It is expected that the rushing 
rules will be distributed very soon so 
that the girls, freshmen and transfers, 
will be able to look them over and 
become acquainted with them. 

The Intersorority Council held its 
annual banquet at the Davenport Inn 
on Wednesday, September 25, with 
Miss ICdna L. Skinner as guest of 
honor. The banquet was followed by 
a short business meeting. 

W.S.G.A. held its first meeting of 
the year on Thursday, September 26, 
at 7:30 o'clock in the Memorial build- 
ing. A series of teas to be given in the 
Abbey were planned and dates were 
drawn by the five sororities, W.S.G.A. 
and Y.W.C.A. 

W.S.G.A. will hold a co-ed dance on

ceded Stewart's kick. The ball was 
partly blocked and went to the middle 
of the field. Then Holmes and the 
Williams team opened up an offensive 
drive that brought the ball down into 
the shadows of the goal posts. The 
Maroon and White put up a good de- 
fense, holding the heavier Williams 
men for two downs. But the weight 
advantage told in the sloppy field and 
Holmes crashed over for the touch- 
down. Incidentally, this man Holmes 
is the same one who made the two 
touchdowns that defeated Amherst 
last year. A kickoff, a State rush, an 
unsuccessful forward pass, and the 
game ended, Williams 12, State 7.

posed and will be made public soon. 
It was decided to award a blazer in

By Peiping Tom 
The Chinee-man 

The Chinee-man, you know, liveK in 
the Orient. The Orient is the land of 
the Sunrise, and can be reached liy 
following the direction of the Sunset. 
This is because the earth is round. 
Anyway, that is what the Chinee-niHn 
learned when he stowed away in ,tn 
Orientation class one day. 

Yes, indeed! The earth is round 
like an orange. And the sun is round 
but bigger than the earth. And the 
earth and the sun and a lot of other 
oranges make up a solar system; and 
solar systems make up galaxies; and 
galaxies make up super-galaxies; ;ind 
super- galaxies make up God-knowH 

But since the Chinee- man had come 
from the Orient, he wasn't interested 
in all his Orientation (besides he had 
studied it once long ago). He was 
watching the little guinea pigs to .see 
how this innoculation of facts and 
fancies would take. Some of the suh- 
jects under observation stared with 
eyes and mouths wide in amazement. 
Others stared with mouths wide and 
eyes closed heavily in sleep. Some 
scribbled notes hastily. Others drew 
funny -faces and nondescript marginal 
lines. But one little piggy-wiggy, 
perched cross-legged, thoughtfully 
wrote on his dog-eared slate. 

Here is the glimpse the Chinee- man 


The high wheel of heaven turns 
With ten million shining Urns, 
A transcendant arc of light 
In the interstellar night. 

Flaming suns with fiery veils 
Balance in their burning scales. 
Spin their curves, and shining (*ome 
By a radiant rule of thumb. 

Starry patterns, starry laws, 
Buried in the primal cause, 
Marshall to the cold decree 
Of a bright geometry. 

The mathematics of the sky 
Is frightening, when such as I 
Cannot with impunity 
Resolve the simple rule of three.

Mountain Day To Be Held 
With Many Innovations 


moon Holiday M'ill Be \n- 
iiounced by Chapel Bell 

M luntain Day has been restored to 
it.s fi rmer place among the older cus- 
tom of the Massachusetts State 
Coll' Re. Once again the only an- 
noun> ement made will be the ringing 
of thi" chapel bell. 

Ir 1923, a new fire tower was dedi- 
latfd on the summit of Mount Toby. 
ColUse officially closed for the day, 
and I he majority of the student body 
and faculty journeyed to the mountain 
when- the day was spent in varied 
actlMties, including wood chopping 
cuntt'sts, pie eating contests, and 
^pet't lies by variou.s important people. 
Karly Popularity 
From that time on, students and 
ihe f.Kulty considered Mountain Day 
.(.•i oiu' of their regular holidays. The 
(hapol bell would ring on a suitable 
fall morning at seven-thirty to declare 
the expected holiday. Everyone flock- 
(4 to the Colonial Inn where a pro- 
(ts.sion of trucks, autos, bicycles, and 
students on foot left for the wide open 
spaces on the first outing of the college 

I year. Apples, cider, grapes, dough- 
nuts, and hot dogs, (all you could eat), 
were .served by the college cafeteria 

Tohy "Renovated" 

Any day now the chapel bell will 

nng to announce Mountain Day. The 

past year has brought about many 

thanges on Mt. Toby. Even the most 

I experienced "Tobyite" will hardly 
recognize Cranberry Pond. This pond 

I has l)een enlarged by CWA workers 
from a six acre pond and swamp to a 

I beautiful thirty-acre pond. Roaring

Brook clearing boasts of a much en- 
larged area with many new fireplaces. 
In previous years much difficulty has 
been experienced in the finding of the 
meeting place. The Outing Club is 
clearly marking the way from campus 
to the place of the meeting. There are 
many alternate routes. Each one will 
be marked, making it impossible for 
anyone to become lost. 

TranNporatioii Solvf>d 

This year's events will l)e held in an 
easily accessible place. There will be 
no excuse for anyone to stay at home 
as adequate transportation will be 
providcnl free for everyone who does 
not to walk. 

This year, the order of events has 
been changed. Instead of journeying 
to the mountain in the morning and 
having lunch there as usual, the events 
will start in the afternoon and con- 
tinue into the evening. They will 
consist of organized sports, contests, 
and hikes in the afternoon followed by 
.supper. In the evening, there will be 
a bonfire and campfire singing by

by the Amherst Community ('oncert

aitiirding to an announcement made 
by Professor Stowell C. Coding, in- 
sttiid of the previous plan of only 
three Amherst concerts. 

The membership for the coming 
vear is greater than it has been for 
any single year since the establish- 
ment of the Community Concert 
Association in Amherst. As was evi- 
denced last year, more interest is being 
shown by the students of the Mass. 
State College than by other student 
groups in the neighborhood. One

The artists who will ap{>ear at 
Springfield Association have been an- 
nounced, but as yet the complete 
schedule of the Amherst Association 
ha.'i not been made public. It is ex- 
pected that Nino Martini, the famous 
tenor who is very popular both in 
concert and in the Metropolitan 
Opera, will be the first of four artists 
who will appear in Amherst. There 
are to be three concerts in Springfield, 
and four in Pittsfield. The Springfield 
.Wociation announces for the coming 
season — Harold Bauer and Ossip 
Gabrilowitsch, probably the most ar- 
tistic duo-piano team in the musical 
world, Lily Pons, the leading coloratura 
Mprano of the present day, and 
I Yeiiudi Menuhin, the violinist. 

It is to be remembered that the 
membership cards are interchangeable 
If the holder cannot attend, the card 
may l)e given to a friend. 

Invitations To 
Dads Are Sent 

Invitations have been sent out from 
the President's Office to all the Dads 
to attend the eighth annual Dad".* Day 
at the Mas-sachusetts State College 
on October 27. Each student is re- 
quested to second this invitation by a 
personal note to his dad inviting him 
to be his personal guest. 

A varied and entertaining program 
has been planned. In the morning, 
there will be opportunity for the Dads 
to visit the class rooms, laboratories, 
and campus buildings. The fraterni- 
ties and sororities are planning recep- 
tions, luncheons, and dinners. In the 
afternoon will be the Worcester Tech 
football game at which the dads will 
be the guests of the college. Between 
the halves of the game, the freshman- 
sophomore six-man rope pull will be 

In the evening, the annual Dad's 
Day show will be put on by the fra- 
ternities. This show consists of skits 
by the various fraternities and is a 
part of the competition for the Inter- 
fraternity Cup. The addition of two 
new fraternities makes it necessary to 
omit the sorority skitA in order that 
the program might be concluded at a 
reasonable hour.

Alumni Night, that annual occa- 

hion when, all over the country, 
Alumni of the college gather to discuss 
'•Id times and recent developments at 
the college, to meet old friends, and 

ho make new ones," has been set for 
O(tol>er 18 this year, although many 
meetings will be held on dates better 

1 suited to conditions in the various 
Iwal groups. For instance, the Wash- 

|'nRt)n Alumni Club held its meeting 
''fi Oriober 4 so that Professor Van 
Meter, head of the division of horti- 

I culture, could meet with this group 

during his stay in the Capitol. In like 
manner, Willis S. Fisher '98 has 
scheduled the Providence reunion for 
October 20. Mr. Fisher, luincipa' of I 
the Gilbert Stewart Junior ^a 

School. Providence, has «1ao at ,(ari 
for a speaker from the college. Fhe 
Ithaca meeting of the Central New 
York Alumni Club will be under the 
direction of Roger Coombs '21 and 
Dr. Cari E. F. Guerman •25„ of the 
division of plant pathology at Cornell. 
A talk will be given by Arnold Davis 
'31, extension professor of horticulture 
at Massachusetts State College. 

President Baker will be the guest of 
the Southeastern Ma.Hsachusetts 
Alumni at a meeting in New Bedford 
on October 26. This gathering of 
Alumni is under the management of 
Robert Jackson '34. It is hoped that 
President Baker will also meet with 
the Now Haven Alumni and those of 
Essex County. 

One of the outstanding alumni re- 
unions planned this year is that 
sponsored by the Worcester County 
Alumni Association under the direc- 
tion of J. Andrew Karlson '33. John 
Maginnis '18 will be toastmaster, and 
Dr. David Potter '16, of Clark Uni- 
versity, will tell of his travels with 
the MacMillan Expedition during the 
past summer. There will be several 
speakers representing the college. 

I At the last Convocation the student 
• body voiced its approval of an in- 
crease of .xeventy-five cents per person 
for that portion of the .Student Activi- 
ties Tax alloted to the Index for 1935. 
This increaHe in the budget will 
enable the Hoard to plan the book on 
the traditional basis of individual 
pictures and personal write-ups. 
William Gordon Whaley '36, editor of 
the 1935 Index, announces that his 
board is ready to begin work on this 
year's publication and will hold its 
first meeting on October 18. In addi- 
tion the editor anticipates several inno- 
vations and also many changes in the 
arrangement of statistics.

If figure* may bi liberally interpre- 
ted, the class of 1938 with the largest 
enrollment in history should be re- 
membered for its brains rather than 
for its brawn. In a compilation of the 
data of the fresnman physical exami- 
nations held recently by Dr. Radcliffe, 
it was shown that the average member 
of the new class did not equal his im- 
mediate predecessor either in height 
or in weight. To some this fact is an 
explanation for the freshman defeat 
in the recent rope pull. 

As a result of 225 examinations it 
was found that the average freshman 
is 65 inches tall and weighs 143.4 lbs. 
In other words he is 3 4-5 inches 
shorter and 1 1-3 pounds lighter than 
his sophomore rival. 

The difference of more than a foot 
between the 75 1-2 inch freshman and 
his 62 inch classmate is not as notice- 
able as that between the 229 1-2 pound 
member and the 103 pound member 
of the class of 1938. j 

Then there is the speculation that 
if laid end to end the 225 freshmen { 
would extend around the outside of, 
the old Alumni P'ield; and if the ' 
32,265 pounds of neophyte bulk were I 
tossed into the swimming pool there 
would be enough water left to drown 
those men on the bottom. 


Mountain Day will he held this 
year at Roaring Brook which is easily

and then in 1911 went to England 
where his first book, A Boy's Will, was 
published in 1913. In 1914 his North 
of Boston, also published in England, 
established his reputation as a poet 
both abroad and in America. From 
1916 to 1920 he taught at Amherst 
College, giving informal seminar 
courses for students interested in 
writing prose or poetry. When the 
University of Michigan offered him a 
newly established fellowship in cre- 
ative art, he became a "poet in resi- 
dence" at Ann Arbor from 1921 to 
1923. Since 1926 he has been teach-

In 1924 and 1931 he received the 
Pulitzer Prize. Some of his best known 
works are: A Rny'n Will, North of

Fifty-nine horses, each sired by an 
animal tracing its pedigree to seven- 
teenth century F>ngland through three 
hundred years of thoroughbreds, are 
now available at the Massachusetts 
State College for cavalry and recre- 
ational purposes. 

Fifteen years ago, the infantry unit 
.which had been located at Massachu- 
.setts State since 1869 was converted 
into a cavalry unit of the Reserve 
Officers' Training Corps, and it has 
been within those fifteen years that 
the metamorphosis of horse flesh has 
taken place. In 1920, any beast under 
a saddle might have clas.sed as a 
cavalry horse. The best mounts were 
imported from Ireland and were pri- 
vately owned, and army horses were a 
nondescript lot. They could not jump 
or gallop, and i-ross-country riding 
was hazardous at it.s b«»st.

five years, and ten of these have been 
purchased in the past year. The mili- 
tary department is authorized to 
spend one hundrfnl and sixty dollars 
for each horse that it acquirt» through 
the Army Remount Association, and 
from the time that the unit receives 
the horse, the value of that animal 
may increase or decrease as its poten- 
tialities are brought out by the officers 
in charge. Five of the remounts which 
have been purchased for one hundred 
and sixty dollars may now be conser- 
vatively valued at one thousand dol- 
lars or better. These animals, Marlene, 
Connie, Masterpiece, Hiland, and Bush, 
are of a distinctly superior type

bred, and are the forerunners of the 
type which the army intends to breed

Too Many Stud<>ntM 

Is the physical equipment and the present instructional staff at this Col- 
lege, capable of educating efficiently one thousand undergraduate students 
and over two hundred graduate students? We believe that the present stud- 
ent enrollment at this college is too large for the best operation of M.S.C. as 
an institution of learning, and that under the present number of enrollment, 
the College cannot serve as the most effectual agent in the education of each 
student. During the past few years, the enrollment has increased tremend- 
ously but there has been but little increase in the size of the instructional 
staff. Classes have Ix^come much larger, thus decreasing the efficiency of each 
professor. Many of the professors are teaching too many classes; most classes 
are too large and unwieldy; the number of classrooms is insufficient; all of 
these factors resulting in ineffective work both from the teacher's and the 
student's standpoints. In the following paragraphs we shiill the fol- 
lowing points, greatly effected by our overcrowded educational situation: 
instructional sUjff, clas-s rooms and equipmsnt; and audituriuin. All ot these 
matters, it is quite evident, are closely associated with the immediate financial 
circumstances of the College, esijecially in regard to State and Federal appro- 

Eiiroliiiii'iit ln«Tfa>»e vs. A|»|>r«ipriMli«»ii 
M.S.C. is not a privately endowed institution but is entirely dependent 
upon State and Federal appropriations for its financial faciUties. In an ex- 
amination of a graph which President Hugh P. Baker ordered compiled last 
year, we found it is quite evident that in the last three years, the State appro- 
priations have l)een cut tremendously. Furthermore the college officials are 
faced with the rather gloomy prospects of fiirther reductions in the College's 
allotment of funds. According to the graph, up to the year 1930, the per- 
centage of appropriation increase was about equal to that of the enrollment 
increase. However, since 1930 the percentage of the growth in student enroll- 
ment has been high in comparison with the percentage of increase in State 
appropriations. Finally the alarming figures show that in the past two years, 
the enrollment has increa.sed about twenty percent while the state appropri- 
ations have decreased eleven percent

A most important point, in our consideration, which would require addi- 
tional expense, is the factor of growth in instructional staff. Up to 1929, the 
growth of the instructional staff compared favorably with the growth of 
student enrollment but since that year, the enrollment has increased tre- 
mendously, while the growth of the instructional staff has been practically 
static. Since 1929, the enrollment has increa.sed about forty-three percent, 
while the increase in the staff has been but six percent. Persons who are 
interested in the advancement of the college, and who believe, as we do, that 
the teacher is as important to a college as the curriculum, should be vitally 
interested in the disclosure that at present most departments are undermanned 

CliiNsroomH nn<l Auditorium 

During the present school year, the lack of sufficient classrooms and class- 
room equipments have become painfully evident. Science lecture rooms are 
over crowded in most instances; the laboratory facilities in most science 
courses, especially the very vital freshmen courses in botany and chemistry 
are insufficient. Concurrent with the lack of a sufficient number of class- 
rooms the crying need is for a larger auditorium to accommodate the entire 
tudent group, faculty, and friends of the College at each assembly. At the 
pre.sent assembly, every seat in Bowker Auditorium is occupied by a student, 
t:ius forcing the faculty members to sit on the stage behind the speaker, a 
vjry disagreeable situation. 

What Now? 

In conclusion, we place before the trustees of the College the following 
(I'.asis: Our consideration of the present conditions of instructional staff and 
t .8 physical staff equipment of the College, and an examination of future 
I -s.sibilities for financial aid, has led us to the conclusion that M.S.C. with an 
I ;.rollment of over twelve hundred students cannot operate with the greatest 
1! iximum of efficiency. We beliivt- that for the present, the enrollment of 
tl. » College should be decreased until such a time when the instructional staff 
an! the physical equipment will l>e sufficiently large enough to effectively 
h; idle the large enrollment. The enrollment can be decreased by two meth- 
<is — a raise in tuition or more rigid entrance requirements. We suggest 
til J latter.

have not had a meet this season as yet, 
the last-year performances of Captain

of the present team, indicates that 
this meet cannot be regarded lightly. 

Last year the Statesmen eked out a 
four-point margin of victory. In this 
meet the present State captain beat 
out the present Husky captain for first. 
Johnson, a sophomore, placed second 
last year in the New England Inter-

The name of Irving Mender '37 is to

Tau pledges last week. 

Having lost their first three games 
on rain soaked gridirons, the Ctmnec- 
ticut State College fo«»tball team will 
attempt to vindicate themselves, this 
Saturday at Storrs, in a game against 
the Statesmen. Considering past per- 
formances, the Taubemen are favored 
to win, but nevertheless, the underdog 
is always dangerous. 

In their opener against the American 
International t%»llege of Springfield, 
the Nutmeggers suffered a 7-0 setback. 
The following Saturday, a strong 
Amherst College eleven had little 
difficulty in trouncing the Connecticut 
boys to the tune of 22-0. ImsI Satur- 
day, playing their third consecutive 
game in the rain, the Storrs outfit was 
once more humbled by the Wesleyan 
College football team.

Clearly shtjwing their superiority 
over a strong Bowdoin eleven. Mass. 
State's foiitball team was held to a 
scoreless t.e in Brunswick last Satur- 

In the first game, playtnl in a heavy 
rainstorm, on Alumni Field, the Taube- 
men went down to a 12 to 7 defeat 
from a heavy Williams eleven; in the 
Bowdoin game, the rain again handi- 
capped the MarcMin and White offense 

Johnny Stewart, State junior, play- 
ing a halfback position for the second 
si'ason, featuH'd the Mass. State 
attack with his kicking, passing, and 
running. Captain Paul Schaffner, 
guard, and Dave Rossiter, sophomore 
center, playcnl consistently well in the 
State forward wall. 

Manter, left end, was the outstand- 
ing man <m the Maine eleven. Time 
and again the tall wingman came in 
to break up plays and make smashing 
tackles. Sawyer, quarterback, was 
notable, taking his t«'am out of danger 
by effective quick kicks which another 
might have despaired of making. 

The game opened with the States- 
men kicking off to Itowdoin. Three 
plays through the- line netted the 
Bears seven yards and S<Hile punted 
to the State thirty-yard line. K<ir the 
remainder of the period the visitors 
kept the ball in the h«ime team's terri- 
tory. After two unsuc<«'ssful thrusts 
at the forward wall had failed. Stewart 
punted to the Bowdoin fifti'i-n-yard 
line. .Soule made two yards through 
the line and, on the next play. Sawyer 
lost his grip on the ball in an attempt 
at a quick kick, and was thrown on 
the eight-yard line. Soule, however, 
punted out of danger and it was

probleni with a deep of remedy- 
ing a grave .social ill perhaps, who 
knows, even hint at a cancer in the 
breast of Academia. Rather from a 
.sense of boredom do I turn to the 
solution, for these people are dread- 
fully depressing and come finally to 
work upon one's nerves. No Messianic 
itch goads me to exhort the freshman 
simply the altruistic hoi)e that four 
years from now other sensitive souls 
like myself will not he ruffled by le 
dernier cri. 

An incident overheard in the library 
the other evening points to the cause. 
A stripling in a quite superfluous 
maroon cap approached the attendant 
and in a plaintive voice inquired: 

"Say, can you show me any books 
with some good ideas for an English 
composition on 'Why I Came to 
College'?" Obviously his immediate 
duty was to write a theme and 
with a prayer in his heart he was 
doing it. To his vital need — a 
consciousness of why he came here — 
he was totally oblivious. Each year 
the plaintive senior is a demonstration 
that dealing with quadratic equations, 
Boyle's law, and dangling participles, 
is not enough. Self consciousness — 
there are more things in that. Fresh- 
man, than are dreamt of in your 
philosophy. The constant posing to 
one's self of those truly educative 
questions, "What am 1? Where am 1? 

Why am IV" and the constant refusal 
to answer them with "Elmer Hrown 
in Amherst to do my work," 
that is the solution. II above routine 
you can remember those mountainous 
questions, I .say unto ye, you shall not 
be lost, though you graduate in four 
months. And thc-r*' will be no last 
disturbing cries of remiirse in the key 
of "I've been cheated."

"I wish you would thank Mr. Gray-

Two students, in the spirit of good

Helchertown the other day and were 
giving him a lift of a couple of miles. 
Just to make conversation, one of the

a small creek. The "bummer" looked 
at him in amazement and then said 
in disgust, "What in h do they 

teach you in college, anyway?"

The State tightened and a 
quick kick was run back to the How- 
doin forty-nine yard line by Stewart. 

The second fjuarter saw the ball 
kept in State territory for the gn iter 
part of the time. Bowdoin garnered 
two first downs by rushing and one 
more on a from Sawyer to -lohn- 
son. Stewart kept the State go.ii out 
of danger by his punting, while 
Sawyer gave a great exhibition of 
kicking. The continual downpour 
hampered any brilliant running, and 
the half ended with the ball in pi)s,sfs- 
sion of the home team on their own 
forty-three yard line. 

In the third quarter, with the wind 
blowing against them, the Statesmen 
elected to kick off and play a defensive 
game. By this time the rain was 
falling harder than ever and the play. 
ing conditions were very bad. After 
an exchange of punts State took to 
the offensive. Stewart slipped through 
right tackle and reeled off twenty-five 
yards before he was tackled. 

In the fourth tiuarter the ball see- 
sawed back and forth. The Statesmen 
gained three successive first downs. 
With the ball on the eighteen-yard 
line and everyone waiting for the 
touchdown, Johnson, Bowdoin back, 
intercepted a pass and reached mid- 
field before being dragged down.

It's no wonder so many

Ted Shawn and Dancers 
Appear Here next Friday 


'I'he dance program of Ted Shawn, 
and his group on Friday evening, 
October 26, at 7 o'clock, will com- 
mence the annual Social Union enter- 
tainments. This year's series includes 
Cornelia Otis Skinner, John Mil- 
holland the magician, the Paulo 
Gruppe Trio, the Varsity Club Quar- 
tette, the Bay State Revue and the 
Musical Clubs concerts. 

Sliawn's programs are unique in 
that he and his dancers have proved 
dancing is not a woman's art but a 
man's. A reviewer in one of the 
Bo.ston papers has said, "No monotony 
in an evening of dance in which no 
woman shared left the reviewer won- 
dering whether an ensemble of the 
more sensuous sex could achieve a 
dance evening so varied and sus- 
tained." The male dance movement 
in this country is comparatively new, 
for it was only two years ago that a 
Boston theatre presented this same 
troupe in what is believed to have 
been the first all-male program ever 
seen in an American theatre. 

Shawn has utilized the music of 
both old and new masters for his 
dances. He has drawn largely from 
the works of Bach, Beethoven and 
Hrahms and the modemifta Proko- 
£eflf and Stcherbatcheff and in doing 
this, has molded his dances so as to 
interpret the exact theme of the 

Shawn once stated: "In addition to 
the fact that it is definitely tied in 
with physical education the value of 
dancing in a college is that it gives the 
men .something above and outside 
what they get in sport. It is the great 
brid>!;e between their bodily activity 
and their mental education. It uses 
the body as sport uses it, vigorously 
and athletically." This probably ex- 
plains the reason why Ted Shawn's 
troupe is made up partly of athletes, 
some of them from Springfield College.

Judging Team Fifth 
In Dairy Products 

Myron C. Davis, Ralph H. Granger, 
and Paul O. Wood, members of the 
d liry products judging team repre- 
senting the Maasachusetta State Col- 
lege in the Annual National Inter- 
collegiate Dairy Products Judging 
Contest held at Cleveland, Ohio, 
placed fifth as a team in judging milk. 
Davis, the only man to win individual 
honors, was eighth in the scoring of 
ice cream. 

The team, coached by Professor 
Merrill J. Mack, placed first in the 
scoring of milk at the t^astern States 
Exposition at Springfield, and won the 
permanent possession of a trophy in 
that contest. In 1933, the team won 
first place in judging butter at the 
Eastern States Exposition, and placed 
first in the scoring of ice cream at the 
national contest in Chicago. 

In the process of acquiring facts, 
have the brain cells become kinetic? 
Has the brain become stagnant or 
active, questioned Mr. John J. Reddy, 
the guest speaker at Convocation on 
Thursday, October 11. 

Mr. Reddy, a graduate of Boston 
College in 1924 and now a division 
supervisor of the New England Tele- 
phone and Telegraph Company, dis- 
cussed the topic of what business 
expects of the college man. 

"The course of study in itself makes 
little difference," said Mr. Reddy, 
"whether the student studies Latin or 
Greek or mathematics or chemistry, 
it is the manner in which the work is 
done, rather than the type of work 

Although he did not discourage the 
development of a good memory, Mr. 
Reddy pointed out the fact that 
memory alone will not lead to success 
in the business world. The develop- 
ment of a keen, analytical mind, 
should be the aim of the college stud- 
ent, and the habits and technique 
acquired by the individual while in 
college will to a large extent determine! 
business success, Mr. Reddy stated in 
his address. 

Common sense or business judg- 
ment may be secured in two ways. 
First, through the formal education 
of the college, and secondly, by actual 
experience in the business world. The 
college man has an advantage over the 
untrained individual, but that ad* 
vantage continues only as the college 
man applies his knowledge in drawing 
definite conclusions from a certain 
series of facts. 

"Do not look for four years of en- 
joyment in college but, rather in the 
first four years of business life," Mr. 
Reddy said in closing. "With the 
many incompetants who have been 
weeded out of the business world in 
the past five years, the opportunities 
for keen men who are capable of 
making sound decisions as to the 
policies of a company are better than 
ever before." 

This morning at the annual fall 
convocation of I'hi Kappa Phi, Rolwrt 
Frost, New England's favorite poet, 
read his poetry and welcomed twelve

Copies of Primitive Rock Paintings 

Show Developments of Bushman Art 

Collection from Afrirn Formm 
Exhibit in Memorial IIiill 

An exhibition of African Bushmen 
paintings is now on display in the 
Memorial Building. These paintings 
are from the collection of copies of 
rock paintings by Brother Otto, of 
the Mariannhill Monastery, Union of 
South Africa. This exhibition is cir- 
culated by the American Federation 
of Arts, a national organization for 
the cultivation of the arts, with head- 
quarters in Washington, D. C. 

The special interest and value of 
this collection lies in the fact that it ' 
forms a remarkably complete record 
of the rock paintings found in a single 
district of .South Africa, namely the 
valley of the Kei River in the neigh- j 
borhood of Keilands and St. Marks in 
the P^a,stern Province. They are. in 
their essentials, characteristic of such 
paintings in all other districts. For I 
Bu.shmen paintings are to be found 
throughout the rocky, mountainous 
stretches of .South Africa, wherever 
rivers and streams, forcing their way 
through the mountains, have cut out 
ravines or "kloofs," abounding in 

caves and rock-shelters. Though un- 
evenly distributed, the paintings are 
j legion and still visible, Iwing super- 
I imposed one upf)n another, in many 
layers, which presumably stretch back 
to prehistoric times. 

Bushmen paintings are invaluable 
records in that they furnish us with 
some insight into the mode of lift- and

The Bushmen are nomad hunters, 
living upon the flesh of wild animals,' 
consequently animals and hunting 
scenes are of very frequent occurrence 
in the paintings. It is surprising that 
so primitive a race should exhibit 
such remarkable artistic talent; but 
it is paralleled by the prehistoric cave- 
dwellers of France and .Spain. 

What were the motives which 
prompted this work? Most of the

thy Corcoran '36 and Robert A. Bieber 
'37 form the committee for nationali- 

undergraduates for life. Yet, at this institution, the .sentiment of the ad- 
ministration has been very much against the idea of granting academic credit 
for work outside the classroom. In our opinion, the awarding of academic 
credits for participation in extra-curricular activities, by the administration 
would be an important step in the successful development of our College. 

Avocationiil PiirMiiitM 

Quoting from Professor Carl W. Ziegler, of Lafayette College: "Scholastic 
grades of college seniors who are candidates for positions are examint'd today 
very properly with greater care than in the past, but the list of their other 
accomplishments which accompany their pictures in the college annual are 
also carefully scrutinized." The frequency with which avocational pursuits 
expand into actual vocations also makes participation in extra-curricular 
activities of great importance. Moreover, in oiur participation in the activi- 
ties we have found the work a preparation for the genuine enjoyment of later 
life and a background for the duties and responsibilities of citizenship. In 
the strengthening of the character and the personality of a student, we believe 
the work in an activity has often been more powerful than the more formal 
courses which he has completed. 

Excoliont Siiporvision of Aotivition 

The extra-curricular activities at this College: the Orchestra, the Band, 
the Glee Clubs, the Debating teams, the Index, and finally, the Collegian, 
play a very important part in the life of the undergraduate. A great amount 
of practical training and valuable experience can be gained from participation 
in an extra-curricular activity, which could never be gained in cla.ssroom 
work. In many colleges, the chief objection to the granting of academic 
credit for work outside the classroom, is that the activities do not have cap- 
able leadership and supervision. However, at our College, we believe, that 
the supervision of each activity, either by a member of the faculty or by a 
temporary leader, is capable enough to warrant the granting of credits for the 
extra-curricular work to the students. 

Activiti«'j< l>oiiiJin«l Mu«-h Tiiuo 

We are of the opinion that the positions on the various activities at this 
College are not being contested for by all of the most capable students. Many 
of the clever students do not enter into extra-curricular activity they 
hesitate to neglect their studies for work which does not grant any academic 
credit Few students or faculty members appreciate the amount of time 
required to participate successfully in an efficient extra-curricular activity. 
In a very conservative estimate, the editors of the college weekly each spend 
over thirty hours a week, in the preparation of each i.s.sue. I^st year, the 
editor of the Index devoted over five hundred hours to the preparation of the 
college year lM)ok. It is small wonder that many students hesitate to enter in 
extra-curricular work. However, we feel, that if academic credits were granted 
for work in an activitv. more of the capable students would respond to this 
incentive and compete for an activity. With the burden of classroom work 
relieved con.siderably, a more conscientious and a more sincere effort could 
be made by each student to establish a most efficient extra-curricular activity. 


In conclusion we believe that the time has arrived to demand academic 
recognition for work in extra-curricular activity. It is a step which will benefit 
the student group, its outside activities, and finally the College it.self. It is 
the plan of the staff of this publication, with the cooperation and .support of 
the Student Senate, to campaign earnestly for the granting of academic credit. 
In the near future, a questionnaire will be distributed to the members of the 
student and faculty groups. If the general .sentiment is that academic credit

Northeastern Downed 
8y State Trio 22-33 

CroMN-Country Tenm Repent n 

Winning its second consecutive 
mei i of the season, the Maroon and 
While cross-country team defeated 
Noriheastern 22 to 33, last Saturday, 
on a rain soaked Franklin Park course. 
Tht victory was the second over the 
inuwn school in as many years. 

'I'liree Statesmen, Captain Walter 
Stepat '35, Ray Proctor '36, and Bob 
Murray '35, repeated their perform- 
anci of last week, crossing the finish 
hne tied for first place. The time of 
26 minutes, 14 2-5 seconds hampered 
by poor weather conditions was rather 
slow for the 4 1-2 mile course. 

For the first half of the race, a 
Northeastern man led the Derbymen, 
with Murray and Proctor close upon 
his heels, and Stepat not far behind. 
From the mid-point, however, the 
Statesmen were never headed. 

The two State leaders ran excellent- 
ly, and a short distance from the 
finish, were joined by Stepat. The 
three Maroon harriers crossed the 
line together, with Lengel, the closest 
opponent, 100 yards in the rear. 

The other two State men, Gillette 
and Bishop, finished seventh and ninth, 

The summary: Tie for first between 
.Stepat, Proctor, and Murray (M); 
4th, Lengel (N); 5th, Johnston (N); 
6th, Stimpson (N); 7th, Gillette (M); 
Bth, Perry (N); 9th, Bishop (M); 
10th, Sudrabin (N). 


An untested Williams College var- 
Hty cross-country team comes here 
this Saturday to meet a more ex-

team. With two well-earned victories

Statesmen loom as the favorites in, 
this opener for the Purple harriers. |

team played here, the Berkshire

The visitors will present a strong 
team on Saturday. Dave Gregory, ' 

I who was undefeated in competition ; 
last year, will offer serious opposition 
to the victorious reign of Stepat, 

I Murray, and Proctor. Captain F>ed 
McVeigh, an experienced harrier, is a 
^ery formidable opponent also. 

John Goodbody, captain of last 
.vears freshman team, and Art Stan- 
*ood, are the two most promising 
sophomores. Another good prospect 
''ut lacking in varsity experience, is 

I Don Humsey, a junior. 


Handing a third defeat of the year 
to the Connecticut squad, the Mass. 
State soccer team led throughout a 
fiercely contested game to win 4-2 at 
Storrs, Conn., October 13. The game, 
part of the Dad's Day program, was 
the fifth straight time the Briggsmen 
defeated their oldest soccer rivals. 

Jim Davidson, junior inside right, 
made the first of his two scores early 
in the game following a scramble in 
front of the goal. Hunter, soon fol- 
lowed with another tally as Conn. 
State was swept off its feet during the 
first period. 

Both sides scored in the next period. 
After exchanging goals, the Nut- 
meggers broke through in a drive that 
ended when a shot from their leading 
player. Read, scored from twenty 
yards. However, Ray Fields, the 
Connecticut goalie, nearly equaled his 
record of twenty-six successful stops 
made during the Amherst game, when 
the Bay State attack, continuing for 
the rest of the half, resulted finally 
in another goal by Davidson. 

The Deneerly outfit set its offense 
rolling during the second half and 
evened the play if not the score. 
Taking advantage of a throw-in near 
the Maroon end of the field, the Nut- 
meggers scored on a pass to Wells 
who was standing uncontested before 
the goal. 

Conway, State sophomore, com- 
pleted the scoring in the last period 
while Sweinberger was outHtanding 
throughout the game at halfback.

Amherst got back into the win 
column after the 75 to rout of last 
week. With Union as an opponent, 
the Ix>rd Jeffs blocked two kicks for 
scores and came out victorious to the 
count of 13-0. Debevoise, Amherst 
end, blocked a Union kick in the first 
period, the ball being downed on the 
13-yard line. A few line plunges and 
a pass brought the ball to the one- 
foot line. Then Snowball, Ixird Jeff 
fullback, took the bal through the 
center of the line*for a score. In the 
second quarter, English blm^ked a 
kick and Amherst took the ball on the 
15-yard marker. In five plays, the 
Jeffmen scored again. The point after 
touchdown was made to make the 
Amherst total thirteen.

Trinity IxmeM to St. Stepheiu* 

Trinity, State's next soccer oppo- 
nent, will present a difficult nut for 
the Briggsmen to crack at Hartford, 
Conn., this Saturday. Meeting the 
Hartford squad for the first time 
early last year the Maroon and White 
received a discouraging 3-1 setback 
from the fast, shifty, and hard-booting 
McCloud men. 

This year's edition of the Blue and 
Gold is probably as good as the 1933 
one. Although suffering a 3-2 defeat 
from St. Stephens, the Trinity players 
indicated no lack of strength in their 
opener, and lost finally on a penalty 
kick. Terry Mowbray, star of last 
year, and Louis Warren will be among 
the veterans State will have to guard. 
Davidson, Hunter, and Sweinberger, 
who showed up well in the Con^iecticut 
game are hoped to repeat for the State 
offense, while Red Wood will turn in 
his usual hard game at fullback. 

Wesleyan took the measure of 
Bowdoin by scoring two touchdowns 
and converting one try for point after

The Amherst cross country team 
lost its meet with the United States 
Coast Guard Academy when the 
Coast Guard runners swept five out

Twichell counted for Amherst in that 

Taking advantage of a blocked kick, 
the Stockbridge school football team, 
gained a 6-0 victory over the Wilbra- 
ham Academy eleven, last Saturday. 
Christensen, left tackle on the home 
team, broke through in the third 
period, to block a punt far in enemy 
territory. Shortly afterwards, with 
Thompson crashing through, the 
Stockbridge team chalked up its only 
touchdown which proved to be the 
margin of victory. 

An enthusiastic crowd watched the 
contest in which the Stockbridge 
School exhibited a smooth working 
eleven. The lineup: 

STOCKBRIDGE — Ball, le; Christensen, It; 
Juhnevicz, Ig; Whittaker, Allen c; Keefe, Fields,

The Wesleyan soccer team, last on 
State's schedule, won 2-0 from Wor- 
cester Tech, the squad that defeated 
the Maroon and White two weeks ago 
by the same score. Both Cardinal 
scores were made from long shots 
during the final period. 

Scoring in every period and piling 
up five goals at the expense of the 
Clark University team, the Amherst 
soccer team shows signs of unusual 
offensive strength in defeating the 
latter 5 to 1 last Saturday.

favor. A 40-yard forward pass from 
Johnny Stewart to Red Sturtevant 
brought the ball to the eight-yard line. 
.Stewart continued the barrage (»f 
passes and two plays later he faded 
back, spiralled a nice paas to Freddy 
Ix-'hr and the Maroon and White went 
into a six point lead. Hill Mulhall 
easily converted the try for point 
which ultimately determined the re- 
sult of the game.

Connecticut State rang up their 
count shortly after the fourth period 
commenced. A steady inarch down 
the field culminated in a touchdown 
when (Jroher, Nutmeg halfback caught 
a flat pass from Poland, quarterback, 
evaded three Tauliemen, and coasted 
over the line for the six points. The 
try for point netted nothing when the 
ball mi.s.sed the uprights by a con- 
siderable margin. 

The cold made fumbles frequent and 
neither team gave an exhibition of first 
cla.S8 football. Both the Statesmen 
and the Nutmeggers relied upon, 
eighteen being thrown of which only 
eight were successful. The Statesmen 
held the edge in first downs, account- 
ing for seven while Connecticut had 

Stewart again proved himself .State's 
biggest offensive weapon while Koenig, 
at fullback, did an excellent job of 
crashing the line and bore the brunt 
of the Maroon and White rushing. 
The Connecticut backfield of Poland, 
(Jroher, Cronin and Johnson, to- 
gether with right end Gold, were the 
main.stays in the Nutmegger's attack. 
Excliaiii^f' FiiinbieN 
Home kicked off for Connecticut 
to open the contest. Red Sturtevant 
gathered in the kick and returned it 
to the 46-yard line before he was 
downed. Con.solatti and Stewart tried 
the line with little result and Stewart 
kicked to the Connecticut 15-yard 
line. Connecticut returned the ball 
and Consolatti fumbled. The Nut- 
meggers recovered the ball but re- 
tained possession of it for only one 
play before a Maroon and White 
player fell on another fumble. 

Stewart then brought the States- 
men's attack into play when he 
faded back and sent a 25-yard pass 
to Bill Davis. The ball was a little 
too high and just evaded Davis's out- 
stretched fingers. The play continued 
in the middle of the field for the rest 
of the period with exchanges of kicks

Of the four home ganu*s they have

on the Connecticut forty-yard line. 
Fumbles by C3onnectitrut and then by

in possession of the ball on their :ir>-

off ten yards and the initial first down 
of the game. .Stewart again took the 
ball around the end and was tackled 
by Johnson aftt;r he gained eight 
yards. Kcn-nig made the other two 
yards for first down and a five-yard 
penalty for offside increa.sed the dis-

the ball <m the next play and Connec-

of tries at the line, I'oland had to 
kick and it .sjiiled over the .State goal 

Putting the ball in play on the 
twenty-yard marker, Koenig hit the 
line twice for no gain and on the next 
play Johnny .Stewart went back to 
kick. The Connecticut line broke 
through and Seremet partly bhjcked 
the kick. After the pileup was untan-

a pass by John.son found Sturtevant

Many Factors Cause Decreased 

Graduate School Enrollment 

S(ut€> C^ollei^e CjradiiHtvN Leud LiHt 
With Forty-Four 

Last week the total enrollment 
in the graduate school had reached 
ninety-five. In explanation of this 
number, Director Sievers said in an 
interview, "While enrollment in the 
graduate school is not completed, 
indications are that the figure will not 
reach that of last year. No doubt 
there are many factors that contribute 
to the falling off, but the one po.ssibly 
operating more than any others is 
that many of our students have 
temporarily exhausted their avail- 
able funds in obtaining the Bachelor 
degree. For the time being, even 
though they may have had difficulty 
in gaining profitable employment, 
nevertheless they are not in a position 
where they can take on the load of 
further college expense. This con- 
dition is expected to be temporary; 
but even to that extent, it cannot help 
but reflect itself in the entire resident 
educational program, because a gradu- 
ate student has a tendency to furnish 
the type of inspiration to departmental 
activity that a wholesome program 

Among the gradaute students there 
are eight institutional fellows: Ben- 
jamin Isgur, Karol Kusinski and Major 
Spaulding, agronomy; James A. Sib- 
son and Russell Snow, physical edu- 
cation; Ambrose McGuckian, place- 
ment bureau; Bruce Hamilton, ento- 
mology; Herbert Jenkins, dairy in- 
dustry. An institutional fellow is 
classified as one "appointed by the 
college president at the request of the 
departmental head to assist in the 
work of the department and is paid 
out of the departmental apportion- 

The horticultural manufactures di- 
vision has had three research assist- 
ants added to its staff: Robert E. 
Buck, Thomas Onsdorff, and Vernon 
E. Watkiiis. William B. Esselen Jr. 
'34, has also been taken into this 
division as a commercial fellow. 

As in past years the graduate school 
has enrolled students from all parts of 
the country, and this year from as far 
north as Mcdonald College of McGill 
University to as far south as Alabama 
Polytechnic Institute. Alumni of Mas- 
sachusetts State College lead the en- 
rollment of the graduate school with a 
total of forty-four, the State Teachers 
Colleges are second with a total of 
five, and are followed subsequently 
by three from Holy Cross College,

More than thirteen million will be 
dispensed among needy college men 
and women starting this fall by the 
federal emergency relief administra- 
tion by paying them for part-time jobs. 
The announcement of this payment 
came from Aubrey Williams, acting 
administrator of the administration, 
in the middle of July. The students 
will receive about $13,500,000 in the 
school year of 1934-35, or about 
$1,500,000 a month for nine months. 
The plan is an enlargement of a 
movement begun last year at the sug- 
gestion of several college and univer- 
sity authorities some of whom took 
the matter before President Roosevelt 
personally. In part, it represents an 
effort to lessen unemployment this 

"Results of the student-aid program 
under which about 7r),000 were helped 
to stay in college last year, have 
plea.sed Harry L. Hopkins, federal 
emergency relief administrator, so 
much that he has authorized expan- 
sion of the work to include more stud- 
ents," Mr. Williams said. 

The FERA fund.s will be alloted 
through state temporary relief ad- 
ministrations to non-profit-making in- 
stitutions. The students will work 
part-time on socially desirable pro- 
jects, including the kinds usually 
found such as clerical, library and re- 
search jobs. Regular class instruction 
is excluded. 

This year college students will have 
an opportunity to teach adult and 
extension classes as part of the part- 
time job program. They will also aid 
in the supervision of recreational 
activities and other services that will 
increase the usefulness of the colleges 
to nearby communities. Some of the 
students may be assigned to local 
emergency relief administrations to 
M.SHist in specialties, such as health 
work, nutrition, vocational agricul- 
ture, and home-making. 

General supervision of the student- 
aid program is in the hands of Dr. L. 
R. Alderman, director of the educa- 
tional division of the federal emer- 
gency relief administration. 

Provision for additional aid to stud- 
ents who wish to study engineering at 
the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute 
has been offered by the educational 
branch of the federal emergency relief 

Under the ruling made in January, 
thirty students who were unable to 
meet the full tuition costs of $360 
were allowed amounts up to half this 
sum by the government agency. An 
additional group of thirty students 
will receive similar Ewsistance. In 
return for this compensation from the 
government each student who receives 
it will be required to engage in some 
service at the institution, such as 
assisting in rating examination papers, 
clerical work, or the cataloguing of 
books. Not more than ten hours a 
week is required on any assignment. 

The American Campus 

Hail Stockbridge for their six to 
nothing victory over Wilbraham! The 
first game of the season was well 
played and revenged last year's de- 
feat. Wess Ball (captain), Harry 
Tompson, and Mike Benben were 
backed up by a weighty line which 
cooperated in line plays and end runs 
with every man doing his job. Only 
one forward pass was tried and this 
proved unsuccessful. Christensen 
blocked a kick in the shadow of the 
goal posts which gave Harry Thomp- 
son the opportunity to put the pig- 
skin over the white line for a score of 
six points. 

Mr. Stratton has high hopes of 
organizing a glee club. If cooperation 
and entertainment can be combined, 
the result will be public performances. 
I^et all who can, help this organization 
and join in the fun that the others 
are having. "Let Holyoke's Hills 
Resound the Strain."

Plans for another successful year of 
debating are being made by the debat- 
ing teams under the direction of 
Arthur J. (Jold '36 of the men's 
varsity team, and Gladys Whitton '35 
of the Women's varsity team. 

The men's varsity debating t«'am 
plans to hold debates with !«'ams in 
Vermont and in eastern New York 
state in addition to the regular home 
debates. All freshmen men who are 
interesttni in debating are eligible to 
try out for the debating team. There 
are four members of last year's varsity 
team in school: Arthur J. Gold '36, 
captain; Donald T. Donnelly '36, 
manager; Max Lilly '37, and Albert 
S. Thomas '37. 

The women's debating team is this 
year entirely on its own, and not con- 
nected with the men's debating team 
as it was in previous years, it will 
now receive an appropriation of its 
own. The team contemplates going 
on several debating trips in addition 
to the regular home debates, one of 
which will probably be held during a 
Convocation period. No member of 
last year's team has been lost through 
graduation and the team includes 
Gladys Whitton '35, captain; I^r- 
raine Noyes '36, Dorothea Donnelly 
'37 and Marguerite IxjDuc '36. All 
girls interested in debating will be 
welcomed. The next meeting will Ite 
held on Thursday, October 18 at 7 p.m.

started the drive which netted them 
the winning margin.

Stewart dropped back and heaved 
the pigskin forty yards to Sturtevant 
who was finally downed eight yards 
from the goal. Consolatti hit the line 
for one yard and Stewart again pasHed 
but too high for Bill Davis and the 
ball landed in the end zone. On the 
next play Stewart dropped back and 
tossed a beautiful pass to Freddy Lehr 
for six points. With Sturtevant hold- 
ing the ball, Bill Mulhall made a per- 
fect place kick and the score became 
Massachusetts State 7, Connecticut 
State as the half ended. 

An exchange of kicks opened the 
third quarter. The Taubemen re- 
ceived a kick on the 25-yard Hne and 
started another march to the goal. 
Stewart and Koenig in eight downs 
klicked oCF two first downs. A Con- 
necticut penalty and a couple of line 
rushes by Murphy rang up another 
first down but Stewart fumbled and 
the attack was stopped. 

Conn. State AdvnnrvH 

This seemed to be the signal for 
Connecticut to advance, for from 
that time on, they held the edge. A 
kick, a few unsuccessful off-tackle 
plays and Connecticut again had the 
ball. Groher heaved a pass but it fell 
untouched. Cronin passed but this 
time Ed Bernstein snatched the ball 
from the air and ran ten yards before 
he was tackled. Stewart attempted to 
pass but the ball was knocked from 
his hand by Pinsky, Connecticut right 
tackle. In the wild scramble. Murphy 

got the ball. Three successive line 
smashes by Koenig accounted for 
eight yards but a five yard penalty 
nullified the gain. Another exchange 
of kicks and an unsuccessful Connec- 
ticut pass completed the quarter. 

The final period opened with the 
ball on the State 40-yard line. Stewart 
fumbled on the first play and Johnson 
of Connecticut fell on the ball. Then, 
the Nutmeggers opnene<l up an attack 
that was only halted when they had 
scored. A pass, Poland to Gold, made 
it first down on the 25-yard marker. 
Cronin reeled off five yards before he 
was tackled hard by Sturtevant. The 
next play, a spinner through right 
tackle, resulted in another first down 
with Cronin again carrying the ball. 
Cronin through guard gained a yard 
and the Connecticut passing team, 
Poland and Gold, just failed to click. 
But the Nutmeggers were not to be 
stopped Poland again dropped back 
to pass. This time, Groher, Connec- 
ticut left half, was waiting for the 
ball and, evading three Taubemen, 
touched the ball down behind the 
goal line. Ricketson entered the game 
to try for the extra point. His kick 
was far to the right of the posts and 
left the Maroon and White leading by 
one point. 

Cronin to Ciold Vasn 

Connecticut kicked off from the 
forty yaid line and Sturtevant ran the 
kick back 25 yards. Koenig and Con- 
solatti gained a few yards and Stewart 
went back to kick. A fifteen yard 
penalty for roughing the kicker gave 
the Statesmen a first down but the 
Maroon and White attack had ceased 
functioning and Stewart kicked to 
the five yard line. Cronin made first 
down in two rushes. Poland to Gold 

made another first down via the air 
route. Another pass made five yards 
and Cronin, on a spinner, fumbled the 
ball but recovered in time. Cronin 
again found Gold for a ten yard pass 
and Gold continued on for eighteen 
yards more before he was brought 
down by Consolatti. The Nutmeggers 
fumbled but recovered and State was 
assessed a five-yard penalty for an 
extra time out. 

Cronin hit the line for two yards 
and a Poland to Gold pass was again 
good for eight yards. The Statesmen 
then took the ball on downs. Conso- 
latti fumbled and lost five yards but 
Sturtevant made it up on the next 
play. Stewart kicked to the Connec- 
ticut 35-yard line, while Bill Davis 
made the final tackle as the game 
ended. The lineup:

A Group Of Ted Shawn Dancers 


('iii(|iie KnMenibl*' t<» i'rt'Nt'iit 
PrtH^rani Friday 

Ted Shawn, faniou.s American dan- 
cer, is to appear in Bowker Audi- 

torium on Friday evening, October 26 
at 7 o'clock. Shawn has studied for 
years to discover the qualities and 
values of the dance. 

Only in very recent times and 
only in the Western world have 
women attempted the Dance. And 
they have merely used it to interpret 
love in 'ts various aspects. In con- 
trast to this idea men have always 
danced, and they have always derived 
their themes from man's age-old occu- 
pations — war, hunting, labor, re- 
ligion, etc. The male dance move- 
went in this country, however, is 
comparatively new, for it was only 
two years ago that a Boston theatre 
presented this same troupe in what is 
believed to have been the first all- 
tnale program ever seen in an American 
theatre. It is Mr. Shawn's intention 
to restore the Dance to its rightful

This year, at the Horticultural 
Show to be held November 2, 3, and 
4, all available space will be given 
over to student display, making the 
show more than ever p.-'marily a 
student enterprise. Saturday has 
been set aside as Garden Club Day. 
Work begins next Wednesday even- 
ing, and all students who wish to 
help will have a part provided to do. 
The Holyoke and Northampton 
florists, who have for many years 
contributed liberally to make this 
show a, will do so again this 
year. The Garden Clubs of the State 
have been invited to participate, their 
class being one of flower arrangements 
for dining tables. 

P'our competitive classes of exhibits 
have been arranged for the students 
with many prizes, including pottery, 
books, seeds, and bulbs. The first 
class consists of a required competition 
between three floricultural courses. 
The second class, the displays, is open 
to all students of floriculture and land- 
.scape architecture. The area allotted 
to each student or group for display 
is 100 square feet. Each entrant is to 
set his own display, furnishing his own 
design and materials. The displays 
range from Alpine Gardens, Pent- 
house Gardens, and Formal Gardens, 
to Informal Woodland .scenes. A 
prize of $10 is offered for the best 
exhibit in this class. 

The third class is a competition for 
students in floricultural courses, and 
consists of the arrangement of varieties 
of small flowered chrysanthemums in 
bowls, baskets, and vases, the use of 
other foliage and accessories being 

Class four consists of miscellaneous 
competitions open to any student. 
Competition A is a basket arrange- 
ment of native or other hardy plant 
materials, while B is a vase arrange- 
ment of these same materials. Com- 
petition C is a winter bouquet; D is 
an arrangement of fruiting branches 
of shrubfl or trees in a copper con-

Faculty Committee 
Recommends Many 
Changes Be Made 

Results of the eight months study 
by the faculty committee, which was 
appointed by President Baker in 
December, 1933 to examine the cur- 
riculum of the Massachusetts State 
College, have now been made public 
through the I'resident's office. 

Assistant Dean I..anphear, chairman, 
and Professors LindH«'y, Alderman. 
Mack, French, (Joldlwrg, and Hriggs 
have, in this study, considered the 
training of the student from several 
points of view. The development of 
the individual's mind and moral 
character, the training of the indi- 
vidual for productive work, the train- 
ing for health, and social and recre- 
ational training have been considered 
each in turn. 

I*»oliii|l Ailri. and Hurt. DeptN. 
The committee has suggested that 
the work in agriculture and horticul- 
ture be combined into one division 
that might be called the Division of 
Plant and Animal Industry. The 
courses in thb division might be 
organized in four series: the agricul- 
tural series, the horticultural series, 
the landscape architecture series, and 
the food technologies series. This 
would, the committee points out. pool 
the resources, common interests, and 
sympathies of the present divisions of 
agriculture and horticulture and per- 
haps lay the foundation of some future 
college of agriculture. 

PhyN. nnd Biol. SrlrnceM to Split 

Work in the physical and biological 
sciences would be reclassified so that 
a division of physical and mathemati- 
cal sciences, including chemistry, 
physics, mathematics, civil engineer- 
ing, and possibly geology; and a 
division of biological sciences, includ- 
ing bacteriology, botany, entomology,

Kxpecting guests from over one- 
third of the students to break last 
year's record attendants of three 
hundred and fifty, the eighth annual 
celebration of Dad's Day will be 
observed on Saturday, October 27. 
Invitations have been sent out from 
the President's office to all the Dads 
and have been seconded by a personal 
note from each student requesting his 
dad to be his sfiecial guest 

As in the past, students will bring 
their dads to the Memorial Building 
to register between the hours of 8.30 
and 2.30. At the time of registration 
dads will receive their tickets admitting 
them to the Worcester Tech — Mass. 
State football game to be called at 
2 p.m. During the morning, dads may 
take advantage of the "open house" 
in all the campus buildings, attend 
the military exhibition at 10 o'clock, 
and meet the faculty at the regular^ 
informal reception from II a.m. to 
12 rioon. The keynote of the whole 
Dad's Day program is to acquaint 
the dads with the activities and 
environment of the Massachusetta 
State College student. 

The complete program for the 
afternoon will be: 

12 m to 1 p.m. Luncheon at fra- 
ternity and sorority houses and 
at Draper Hall Cafeteria.

Declaring Japan is most radically 
different from America in its home 
life and customs, Mrs. Yoki Kyojima, 
professional Japanese ikebanist, drew 
a comparison between the two coun- 
tries in an interview with a Collegian 

Mrs. Kyojima, who is now staying 
on campus with Prof, and Mrs. Frank 
A. Waugh. will arrange an exhibit of 
ikebana, or Japanese floral arrange- 
ment for the annual Horticultural 
Show scheduled for this November. 
This display promises to be very | 
unique, for the floral arrangements are 
both unusual and sometimes very 

A few examples she gave were that 
the Japanese never wear shoes in the 
house, and consequently, the floors on 
which they sit, are "as clean as a 
snow- white bedspread." Braided mats 
cover the floors and serve as chairs 
for the members of the family, but a 
guest must always be given a cushion. 
In like manner, the cushion in a 

glorified fashion takes the place o*" 
the American l)ed. The Japanese 
sleep on a flexible cotton cushion or 
cushions placed on the floor. 

Here, Mrs. Kyojima brought out a 
book of illustrations on phase.s of 
Japanese life, and thereafter, used 
this book to supplement her remarks 
and diflRculties with English. Because 
the women of Japan wear such elabo- 
rate coiff'ures, the pillow which has 
come into is one made of wood and 
sometimes covered on one side with 
wool. Beautiful textiles are often 
used in the making of these pillows 
but the "genuine" pillow is made 
primarily of wood. 

From a discvissiun ol furniture, the 
subject naturally turne.. to the topic 
of food. Rice is the piece de reaiatence 
in the Japanese meal and is usually 
cooked over a small charcoal fire and 
placed in individual bowls and covered 
to retain the heat. It was with great 
magnanimity that Mrs. Kyojima con- 
ceded that rice might be served in the 
wooden, coverleas, soup bowls, but 
she emphasized the fact that "the roal 
rice bowl must be made of porcelain 
and have a cover which may also aerre

{In terms of capital investment alone, higher education is one of America's 
largest businesses. Few students are aware of the magnitude of the financial 
operations of the whole American college educational system, of which our College 
is a unit. In the last five years, commencing with the drive for the new Physical 
Education building; the successful campaign led by President Hugh P. Baker 
to secure Federal funds for the construction of Goodell Library and Thatcher Hall: 
and finally, the present effort of the Administration to secure additional money 
for the continuance of its progressive building plan, the question of capital in- 
vestment in higher education has been constantly discussed at our College. The 
future growth of Massachusetts State College is dependent on State and Federal 
funds. In our opinion, the following article, written by William E. Berchtold in 
"The New Outlook," is an excellent presentation of the problems and the size 
of American college finance. — Editor's note.) 

Colle];t<' Property Worth Over Three Billion 
Property owned by the nation's 1078 institutions of higher learning is 
valued at $3,280,054,000, which represents an increase of 172 per cent in a 
single decade. Their libraries are stocked with 44,396,000 volumes; their 
dormitory facilities alone are valued at $198,369,000; and their annual ex- 
penditures for operation and new con.struction top the half billion dollar mark. 
Although the universities and colleges were slow to admit that they constitute 
such a gigantic "industry" and to employ business and financial management 
commensurate with the task, the very size of the undertaking has forced such 
recognition within the last decade and particularly during the last four trying 
years of depression. 

246 Ptihlic Colleiie*i, 832 Private Colle^eN 
The New Deal is filled with implications for higher education, implications 
which may force revolutionary changes in college financing, if not a drastic 
realignment of the system of higher education itself. The great majority of 
our colleges and universities have been founded on the gifts and bequests 
growing out of the great fortunes built up by the men once called "pioneers" 
and "empire builders" and now more popularly and contemptuously referred 
to as the "robl>er barons." The "Sound Old Bankers" of the last decade have 
come to be called merely by their alphabetical initials, in keeping with the 
abracadabra of the New Deal; and so the colleges and universities — at 
least, the eight out of every ten that are privately controlled — face a new 
set of conditioJis;. (lifts and bequests are diminishing in size and number, and 
the prospects of heavier and heavier taxation on great fortunes provide little 
hope that gifts will ever reach their former size again. The taxed tycoon is 
quick to suggest that the State which taxes him provide for the agencies which 
he once took personal satisfaction in .supporting from his unspendable fortune. 
State financing of higher education, now amounting to less than $20,000,000 
from the Federal Government and abcjut $100,000,000 from states and cities, 
would mean a new burden on already emptied or emptying treasuries. The 
832 privately controlled universities and colleges now save the public treasu- 
ries of the forty-eight states at least $33r), 000,000 annually. Publicly con- 
trolled colleges and universities, numbering 246, have grown rapidly during 
the last quarter century, but they could not possibly absorb the students in 
the 832 private institutions, even if such a change could be accomplished 
without sacrificing research programs or leaving capable teachers stranded. 

Kllect of Depres.»iion 
The Depression, which did not hit the academic world until the year 
1930-31, has struck a severer blow at publicly supported institutions than at 
those which are privately endowed. Kight out of ten colleges experienced the 
effects of reduced revenues during the last academic year, with about thirty 
per cent less income available for operating and capital expenditures than in 
1929-30. Public institutions' income averaged 38 per cent less, while private 
colleges and universities were in a better position with a 20 per cent average 


Financial Experts at Colle4«* 

Business and financial practices of universities and colleges have undergone 
vast changes during the last two decades. While the responsibility of trustee- 
ship of the hundreds of endowed institutions is as much cultural as financial, 
the magnitude of the financial operations connected with these endowments 
has assumed huge proportions. The trusteeship of American universities is 
equal to that of one-third the savings deposits in all mutual .savings banks in 
the United States. Obviously it has become necessary to employ the most 
expert financial brains to secure the principal and income from $1,225,558,000 
in productive funds held by private colleges, and $122,117,000 held by public 


Collei^e President Leads Drive for FundH 

The unwritten clause in every university president's contract today pro- 
vides that he shall be a good campaigner for funds from the state legislature, 
if he is president of a public institution; or if he is president of a privately 
endowed institution that he shall perform in society with a capital-S and be 
an effective persuader of wealth. But campaign methods have changed in 
the last two decades. The annual campaign for funds from the state legis- 
lature is now as carefully planned and organized, with effective publicity for 
public support, as any political campaign. 

Pretty snooty . . . 

An announcement of the first annual 
fall swimming meet of the Boy Scouts 
had the following at the bottom:

One collegian says . . . 

Poetry, like lightning, strikes many 
a strange spot. Here is one strange 
siwt it did not strike: 
Since "on the carpet" for the Dean, 

Jack has this to say: 
"Many a deanie's rug I've worn, in 

Evening school and day, 
But should those Deans join the firm 

Of the very largest rug concern, 
We'd have the most amazing firm, of 

Lord, ONeil & Pray !" 

Blunder is the word . . . 

A math, teacher enlightened his 
class on a very delicate point the other 
day. As he was puttiug an example on 
the board, he put down one number in 
the answer where he should have put 
another. This was pointed out to him 
by the class. He turned and looked 
them over carefully. "When I do a 
thing like that, it's only a mistake," 
he said. "When you do that, it's 

situation. We are apt to form a habit 
without considering whither it leads, 
or to have a dim idea of an object, 
adopt a means of reaching it, forget 
the object and develop the means 
until it is quite inconsistent with the 
object to be attained. These things 
are true of college athletics," said the 
late President Lowell of Harvard. 

Although they began as games 
played by those who enjoyed them, 
college sports soon lost the atmosphere 
of "Sport for sport's sake," and de- 
veloped into contests between tra- 
ditional rivals. More and more atten- 
tion was attracted, larger and larger 
became the expenses and the receipts, 
until finally, the undergraduate found 
himself lost in a swirl of figures. His 
capacity was overtaxed, and inter- 
collegiate contests expanded into color- 
ful spectacles attracting thrill-seeking 
people by thousands and tens of 
thousands. Winning teams meant 
gate receipts and stadia, and more 
winning teams and larger gate re- 
ceipts, and out of it all has come a 
group of elaborately trained contest- 
ants and coaches who must win at 
any cost. 

One might safely say that inter- 
collegiate sports savor more of the 
World Series, the gladiatorial com- 
bats in the Coliseum in Rome, or the 
races in Constantinople, than they do 
of college, that one has acquired a 
taste for the pitting of man against 
man and the crunching of bone 
against bone? 

How has this state of affairs come 
about? Upon whom can we fasten 
the responsibility for this develop- 
ment? There is no single individual, 
neither is there a single institution 
that can be condemned for thus de- 
forming college sport. The present 
situation is not the result of conscious 
choice, but rather the result of aimless 

setts State College, have reached a 
point at which a decision must be 
made. Shall we uphold that which is 
noble and true, or that which is base 
and false?

Rabbits don't get a chance in this

drifting. The system of training 
college athletes has become more and 
more technical, more professional and 
more unwieldy, in the same manner 
in which the simple folk of the villages 
and cities of Europe were drawn into 
an ever-tightening net and then sud- 
denly plunged into war. Participants 
in any contest, whether it be ping pong 
or polo, play with the hope of win- 
ning. When amateur meets amateur 
and professional meets profes-sional, 
the same desire exists, but as winner

are staged, a new factor is introduced 
— win, but win at any price. 

We have seen, and sneered at see- 
ing, the moving picture producer's 
conception of college life. We have 
read highly flavored and artificially 
colored novels, we have nodded 
knowingly over a hundred essays on 
professionalism in collegiate athletics, 
we have condemned the western uni- 
versity and its policies of football, 
freedom, and fun, and yet, we have 
been blind to developments near at 
hand. There was a time, in the not 
yet distant past, when the name of the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College 
appeared with those of several other 
institutions are being on the "lily

year, the then Ma.s.sachu.setts Agri- 
cultural College lost all of its ftnitball 
games. Then came a change, and in 
the first year of the Ma.ssachu.setts 
State College, athletic victories 
mounted to unexpected heights. This 
was a "new deal," an awakening of 
the student body to the finer graces 
of living. During the past year we 
have witnessed the results of that 
change. On several occasions, we 
have hung our heads as unsportsman-

The Chinee-Man 
Editors and publishers are a crotchy 
lot. They want copy, copy, copy all 
the time. You would think that 
printing words on paper was their 

"How about a column this week?" 
they asked the poor old Chinee- man 
who had enough shirts to iron, good- 
ness knows, without writing for a lot 
of stiff shirts besides. 

"Everybody is dying to read your 
column," they flatteringly informed 
the senile reprobate. 

"What awful shame to die so 
young," quoth old Tom, as he searched 
for the other piece of heiroglyphics 
to match the editor's pink laundry 

"No findee him," said the Chinee- 
man. "No checkee in bundle no

Ob, you, who have not "essayed" 
to become a columnist do not know 
the trials and tribulations of a cre- 
ative artist — and yes, one might add, 
the trials and tribulations of news- 
paper editors. Life is a hardship for 
both of them. There are often times 
when both the Chinee-man and the 
editor feel much like doing nothing. 
There are times, while in the throes of 
creative work, that both of them get 
up and look at the desk piled high with 
copy, old bills, odd gloves, and 
ginger-ale bottles, and then go right 
back to bed again. You see, creative 
work isn't like any other kind of 
work, for it must come from a great 
emotional upheaval in the soul of the 
writer; and if that emotional up- 
heaval is not present, it must come 
from the works of other writers 
which happen to be handy and easily 

So this week, the Chinee-man and 
the editor, like true college gentle- 
men, are forced to make:

Rhode Island Downs State 

In Hard Fought Contest, 7-0 

Stewart and Sturtevant Feature 
Work of Taubenten 

Failing to capitalize on several 
gcor ng opportunities, the Maroon and 
White gridmen fell before a high 
powired Rhode Island State football 
noac'ime 7 to on Alumni Field, 
Saturday. The Statesmen several 
timt.' advanced far into Ram terri- 
tory but they lacked the extra punch 
before a tightened Ram's defense. In 
the final quarter, Rhode Island turned 
back a Maroon and White offensive 
marih, took the ball, and marched 
ninety yards for the only score of the 
game. Seven successive first downs 
were rung up in this assault before 
Fisher, Rhode Island quarterback, 
lugged the pigskin over the line. 

The Statesmen had several chances 
to score previous to this but on each 
occasion the State attack was held 
when the Ram's goal was threatened. 
The last period opened with the 
Taubemen in possession of the ball on 
I the Rhode Island 23-yard line and it 
looked as though a touchdown was 
I certain. 

But, with inches to go for a first 
I down, the Maroon and White lost the 
I bail and the Rams opened up their 
1 victory drive. Montenuto, Rhode 
I right halfback took the ball on the 
first play and had clicked off eleven 
I yards before Jack Koenig pulled him 
I down. Fisher added a couple of 
I yards and then he took the ball again 
I for another seven or eight. Fisher 
I made first down through tackle on 
I the Ram's 38-yard line. 

Fisher hit the line twice and then 
j raced around right end for another 
Ifirst down. Fisher and Mantennto 
Icontinued to run up first downs and 


Enitineers Have Won But One 

Have Won 

Making their fifth attempt to get 
their offense going, the Statesmen will 
take on the Worcester Tech football 
team on Alumni Field Saturday. This 
game should provide the Maroon and 
White the opportunity they have 
been seeking to get their offensive 
punch clicking, for the Engineers by 
no means appear to have a very for- 
midable outfit. Whatever advantage 
they will have over the Taubemen 
will be in weight and the latter are 
by no means unused to that. 

However, the attitude of the Tech- 
men is that they'll have no Lou Bush 
to cope with as in last yearls episode. 
As will be recalled, it was here that 
Bush entered the fray in the second 
period after the Statesmen had been 
rebuffed for the first quarter and was 
directly responsible for the three sub- 
sequent State touchdowns. The final 
standing was 20 to 6. 

Only once in two years have the 
Techmen tasted victory. Last Satur- 
day they emerged winners over Nor- 
wich by dint of a flash of real football 
in the last quarter which culminated 
in a combination forward pass-lateral 
touchdown play for the only score of 
the game and of the season so far. 

In the season's opener played with 

the Coast Guard Academy at New 

London, Conn., the Tecluuen were set 

down 13 to 0. Only once during the 


One unusual feature of the Rhody 
game was a 45-yard advance of the 
Taubemen without as much as touch- 
ing the ball. The Maroon and White 
had the ball on their own 34-yard line 
when a fifteen yard penalty for holding 
was called on the Rams. The referee 
paced off the yards to the tune of 
vociferous protest from Coach Keaney 
of Rhode Island. This brought another 
fifteen yards and then still another 
when Coach Keaney stepped onto the 
field to continue his objection. "^I'he 
Statesmen received the ball on the 
Rhode Island 14-yard line but were 
set back on a fifteen yard penalty 
and lost possession of the ball.

ham. State right end, almost scored 
when he just missed a Stewart pass 
on the goal line. The pass was a 
beauty but just evaded Lapham's out- 
stretched hands. A Rhode Island 
kick and a Consolatti runback of a 
kick ended the first session. 

The Statesmen opened the second 
period with Jack Koenig reeling off 
seven yards. Stewart picked up the 
other three for a State first down. 
Then Stewart dropped back of his 
line and heaved a perfect pass to Bill 
Davis but as both teams jumped the 
signals, the ball came back. Another 
attempt at the line and Stewart kicked 
over the goal line. Rhode Island put 
the ball in play on the 20-yard marker 
and gained but six yards in three tries. 
The kick which came, gave the 
Statesmen possession of the ball on 
their own 42-yard line. Stewart 
tossed two passes but both fell un- 
touched. With ten yards to go, 
Stewart kicked on the third down 
over the goal line. The Rams again 
took the ball on the twenty-yard 
stripe and advanced up the field 
making two consecutive first downs, 
only to have the ball pop from Man- 
tenuto's hands as he was hit by three 
Maroon and White men on the States- 
men's 45-yard line. Sturtevant grab- 
bed the loose ball before it touched 
the ground and raced 48 yards before 
he was downed on the Rhode Island 
8-yard line. 

But here the State attack refused 
to function and after Koenig and 
Stewart each tried the line the ball 
was given to Rhode Island. Keaney 
kicked out of danger after two downs 
and another march began for the 
Statesmen. Several gains by Maroon 
and White 

Worcester Tech took a 6-0 win from 
the Cadets of Norwich. (iermain 
scored late in the final period after 
taking a lateral on the end of a for- 
ward pass play. It was fourth down 
with eleven to go for a first down 
when the Engineers revealed this play. 

Williams took the measure of Bow- 
doin by a 20 to score while Tufts 
downed Connecticut State 14 to 0. 

Both of State's remaining soccer 
opponents met some stiff competition 
over the week-end. Wesleyan lost to 
Yale 2-0 while Amherst tied Harvard 
3-3 in a freely scoring battle. Amherst 
is due to meet Wesleyan this Saturday 

I.«ading their opponents during 
ninety percent of the game, the State 
soccer team was finally forced into 
two fruitless overtime periods by a 
last minute goal from the Trinity 
hooters at Hartford last .Saturday. 
The tying score that cost a decisive 
win over the team which last year 
easily conquered the Briggsmen 3-1, 
resulted from a free kick just Iteyond 
the penalty area with but a few seconds 
to play. 

Taking the offensive at the opening 
of the game, the Blue and (lold play- 
ers seemed headed for another victory 
but failed to score an Turner who was 
filling his first assignment in the .State 
goal. Krom the first period on. how- 
ever, the State passing attack de- 
velo|M*d into their »)est exhibition of 
the .sea.son and kept the ball out of 
danger and in Hartford territory. 

Both of .State's scores came in the 
.secimd period after much hard play- 
ing. Bob Hunter, left inside, was the 
first to stretch the strings when he 
received the rel>ound from the Trinity 
goalie off his body. Bieber. playing 
wing, scored again from a corner kick 
formation to give .State a 2-0 lead at 
the end of the half. 

Mowbray, the c-enter forward who 
led the Hartford men's scoring last 
year, rang up the first Trinity count 
in the third quarter during a scrim- 
mage in front of the Maroon goal. He 
later was lost to the team and neither 
side score<l again until at the end of 
the fourth (|uarter, a free kick oc- 
curred outside the penalty area and 
Warren converted.

time was 21 minutes. 2ri .seconds.

With both presenting formidable 
and undefeated teams, the Worcester 
Tech and State College cross-country 
outfits will race here .Saturday in the 
twelfth meeting of the two teams 
since the regime of Coach Derby, at 

The Tech runners were the only 
combine to pin a defeat on the Derby- 
men in last year's otherwise perfect 
season. The match was very, 
with the Engineers emerging the 
victors by a slight one point margin. 
This year's team promises to provide 
keen competition once again. 

Granger of the Techsters, is a 
dangerous man. In the opening meet 
with Tufts, he led his nearest oppo- 
nent by three hundred yards. Mc- 
Kinley and Moran are two more 
Worcester lads who will bear > atching 
in Saturday's race. 

The State hillers have a team which 
has already shown itself to be better 

In thirteen years, in only one year 
did the Manum and While harriers 
lose more meets than they won. The 
teams have engaged in .58 me«'ts to 
date and have lieen the victors in 
40 of them. 

Against its main rivals. .State has 
won the majority of the meets. From 
Worcester Tech. the Statesmen have 
captured eight and lost three. With 
the lAtrd Jeff men. State has won six 
out of ten; from St. .Stephens, five out 
of six. Boston University has been 
completely whitewashed as Sute cap- 
tured all four. With Wesleyan. State 
has split even, taking five meets out 
of ten; while from the other member 
of the Little Three. Williams, Mass. 
State has won four out of five races. 
Other victories that have been chalked 
up were over Rhode Island Poly- 
technic, Rhode Island SUte. Conn. 
State, and Tufts. State bowed to 
Springfield once in 1928, and to 
Harvard in 1927. In both cases they 
were the only defeats of the year. 
Twice the Derbymen have scored 
grand slams, that is the seven State 
men have cros.sed the line ahead of 
any of the opponents. One of 
was against Amherst in 1926. and the 
other time was in 1925, when in the 
Worcester Tech meet, the seven men 
crossed the line hand in hand.

Convo. Speaker Will 
Discuss Foreign Affairs 

Dt'hriddhi llfvukul im Vwitfcl by 
Flit her 

Debriddhi Devakul has come way 
from Siam, the Land of the White 
Elephant, to study at the Massachu- 
setts State College. Born in Berlin, 
where his father was Minister to 
(Jermany, and educated in his native 
country and in America, he proves to 
be one of the most interesting and 
cosmopolitan members of the student 

The family of Devakul has always 
been prominent in Siamese diplo- 
matic affairs. His father was once 
MinLster of Foreign Affairs, and is 
now serving as an attache of the king 
of Siam. When the king visited this 
country within the past month, Mr. 
Devakul took the opportunity to come 
to Amherst to visit his son. He spent 
four days here, was treated to a 
faculty dinner and to a dinner at 
President Baker's home, and was 
shown about the campus. He was 
greatly impressed by the college and 
enjoyed most of all, the location of 
the campus. He is on the high seas 
now bound for England and later for 
Siam and will not see his son again 
for five years. 

When Devakul came to the United 
State five years ago, his first impres- 
sion of the country was one of great 
wonderment at the beauty of the New 
York skyline, and his first displeasure 
came soon after when he was served 
a dish of strawberries for his first 
breakfast. He didn't like them then, 
he says, but they are one of his favor- 
ite dishes now. 

He knew very little English when he 
landed here, and consequently had to 
begin his American education in the 
primary grades of grammar school. 
He was sent first to the Fenn School 
in Concord, N. H. He found his 
studies rather difficult at first, but 
the thing that impressed him most 
about the place was his first experi- 
ence with a New England winter. He 
had never seen snow in his life, and 
when the first snowfall came he was 
excused from classes and allowed to 
play in the snow for a whole afternoon. 
Devakul's training for college came 
at the Belmont Preparatory School 
and from there he came to Massachu- 
setts State with the intention to 
major in dairying and to use h«. 
knowledge to better the dairy con- 
ditions in his native country. He also 
intends to gain some knowledge of 
rice farming before returning to Siam, 
since that is the principal occupation 
of his people. 


Speaking on "The New Deal in its 
Broad Aspects," Mr. Philip Whitwell 
Wilson will address the Convocation 
on November 1. 

Mr. Wilson is an Englishman who 
entered Parliament as one of its 
youngest members at the age of thirty, 
but has lived long in America. In 
1917 he came to New York to repre- 
sent the London Daily News and on a 
mission of Anglo-American under- 

He is now a special contributor to 
the New York Times, where his inter- 
pretation of foreign affairs and the 
economic situation and his reviews of 
books have attracted wide attention. 
His articles also appear in Current 
History, the Review of Reviews, North 
American Review and other periodi- 
cals. He is on the permanent staff of 
the Encyclopedia Britannica, and is 
the author of The Life of William Pitt 
the Younger, which was the "Book of 
the Month recently.

opportunity to hear current European 
and international problem" inter-pre

on both sides of the Atlantic, and Mr. 
Wilson will present the benefit of his

Continuation of the trend of the 
past few years towards an increased 
student enrollment in the physical 
and biological sciences is shown by 
figures on the distribution in major 
divisions released by the Registrar's 
office. Of the largest enrollment in 
the history of the college numbering 
1019 four-year student, 484 or 47", are 
enrolled in the above departments 
while the social science group also 
shows an increase over last year's 
figures and is again in second place. 
A corresponding decrease in the 
per cent majoring in agriculture and 
horticulture is also present, the drop 
in the former division being from 6.6? 
to 5.49'i Eleven years ago, with an 
enrollment of only 283 students in the 
three upper classes, 20.11 majored in 
agriculture. At this time as well as 
now, the majority of the students

Quoted Hol>ert Frost from his poem 
"Mending Wall" in his scholarship 
day address last week. "Mending 
Wall," explained HolnTt Frost, "is 
an expre.ssion of a strong prejudice in 
favor of basing all imagination and 
judgment on country things. One has 
a need of being versed in country 
things. For one who is not versed in 
country things knows nothing of dirt, 
cheap as it may be in the city; knows 
nothing of people and can understand 
but little of politics. If there is any- 
thing in the New Deal it is in its 
attempt to restore the balance be- 
tween country and city. 

Robert Frost further pointed out 
the complexity of country life, and 
remarked that the sentiment of the 
city might well be expressed in "The 
Span of Life." 

"The old dog looks backward without 

getting up, 

I can remember when he was a pup." 

"The man of New England has 

character and ideas of his own. You 

may tell him what to do. but how or 

when, never. In that respect the 

normal undergraduate is so different. 

He must be told everything for he has 

a pride of spirit beyond everything." 

In this way Frost characterized the 

average college student. 

"Earth's the right place for love: 

I don't know where it's likely to go 

I'd like to go by climbing a birch-tree, 

And climb black branches up a snow- 
white trunk 

Toward heaven, till the tree could 
bear no more, 

But dipped its top and set me down 

That would be good both going and 
coming back. 

One could do worse than be a swinger 
of birches." 

ticut River Valley was partly ohscured 
by mist, hut enough was visible to I 
locate a few «.f the local landmarks. 

"Kverything that gin-s up must 
come down." It i.>t sad but true. 'I'he 
de.scent. however, was very much 
easier than the upward grade. Back 
at Roaring Brook, there was a nmring 
fire t)ver whieh the steaks were 
j broiled, and baked lieans. cider, and 
cocoa H«Tved. Apples and carrots 
{helped make the peri<Kl of waiting 
I more endurable. After supper, there 
was a honfire, around which there was 
.singing by the triple sextet and oth<TH. 
There were no s|>eakers because of 
the size of the gathering and the 
difficulty in making one's self heard. 
The homewanl journey was started 
about 7.15. Mountain Day is over 
until next year. In the meantime, 
with memories of this year, many are 
making plans for next year.

Soon the trails up the mountain 
were swarming with hikers racing up 
to the top. Some of the hardier souls 
made the grade on high, while their

has been recommended. This work 
would be withdrawn from the division 
of social sciences, and would include 
courses in English, Cerman, the Ro- 
mance languages, the fine arts, and 
philosophy. Work in this division 
would lead to the A.B. degree. 

The committee also recommends 
that graduation requirements be re- 
duced to one hundred and twenty 
semester credits exclusive of the re- 
quired military and physical education 
credits; emphasis might be placed 
upon a few courses w«.|l given, than 
upon many inadequately financed and 
poorly given; and required courses 
should have a logical and clearly 
stated objective the committee points 
out in its report.

of the field. A five-yard penalty, 
several no-gain plays and a six-yard 
run by Jack Koenig resulted before 
Stewart kicked. Khode Island ran the 
ball back 12 yards which together 
with a five-yard Maroon and White 
penalty put the ball on the 34-yard 
line before the period ended. 

Opening the final quarter, Koenig 
made four yards for the Taubemen 
and Stewart picked up over five more 
but the ball went to Rhode Island when 
the Statesmen just missed a first 
down by inches. Then the Rams 
began their march that ended with a 
touchdown and victory. Mantenuto 
and Fisher carried the ball ninety 
yards, amassing seven first downs 
with the latter scoring. 

Rhode Island kicked off and Con- 
solatti made twenty yards on the 
runback of the kick. Stewart was 
again nailed when he went back to 
pass and the Maroon and White lost 
ten yards on the play. Consolatti 
made three yards through tackle and 
Stewart kicked to the middle of the 
field. The Rams tried three plays 
which netted them four yards and 
then kicked to Consolatti on the 
25-yard line. Two forward passes 
advanced the ball to the 45-yard 
stripe but on the next play Rhode 
Island intercepted a Stewart aerial and 
the game ended Rhode Island State 7,

as a container for salt. "Saki," the 
Japanese wine must aLso be served in 
a special, thimble-sized bowl. "Are 
you limited to one drink?" the re- 
porter asked. "You may have forty 
if you like," she answered laughingly. 
To the reporter's request that she 
tell her something of the daily life of 
a young Japanese girl, Mrs. Kyojima 
explained that everyone attends high 
school, and while most boys go to 
college, only the exceptional girls 
have the chance to attend institutions 
of higher learning. Today the Japan- 
ese girl plays tennis, cards, learns 
magic, studies domestic science in 
high school, and must know something 
of floral arrangement before she 

"I first learned floral arrangement 
because everyone does," she added, 
"but ten years ago, I decided to study 
extensively enough to be able to 
teach the art. There are two classic 
or old style types of floral design from 
which all other schools are derived. 
I spent my first three years in study- 
ing Koryu, the oldest and most difli- 
cult school. When I had received my 
certificate in this school, I went on to 
a study of ikenobu, the second classic 
school. Now I have my two certifi- 
cates and may hang out my 'teaching 

shingle.' There are several new schools 
of art but they are all derived from 
the older ones and simply get their 
names from the name of the favorite 
teacher of the originator of the 

In speaking of the dress and habits 
of the Japanese girls Mrs. Kyojima 
said that they are as vain of their 
appearance as are of all other 
countries. They wear their hair in 
very elaborate fashions, these fashions 
differing with the social status of the 
individual, there being different styles 
for the married, the unmarried women, 
and for the geisha girls. 

It takes an hour to arrange the 
hair in these intricate fashions, so 
that the girls take care not to dis- 
arrange it in order to preserve a set 
for a week. Hence, the use of the 
curious pillows. 

It is also quite the fashion for women 
to smoke, and several do so, but not 
cigarettes. They smoke long, narrow 
bamboo pipes or pipes made of silver 
or a combination of bamboo and 
silver. The strange feature of these 
pipes is that they have very 
small bowls which contain only a 
scrap of tobacco and must be re- 
plenished at every puff. 

Unlike their American neighbors, 
the Japanese do not sanction dancing 
for their daughters. That art is left 
to the geisha girl, the professional 
singing and dancing entertainer. 

In conclusion, Mrs. Kyojima .said 
that undoubtedly her passport will be 
renewed for another six months after 
her first permission to stay for six 
months in the United States has 
expired. "I find life in an American 
home very interesting, and the clothes 
too, but I have never worn American 
clothing. I like my own best."

1 leaking all previous records for 
attendance on Dad's Day, four hun- 
dred and thirty dads enjoyed the

.\Jpha and Q.T.V. next in order. 

Following the customary program 
of Dad's Day, the students brought

pus to see how the different depart- 
ments of the college are conducted. 
Between 11 and 12, the faculty held 
an informal reception for the dads in 
the Memorial building. 

In the afternoon, the students and 
their guests attended the football game 
tietween Worcester Tech and Massa- 
chusetts State at Alumni Field. Be-

To be an average infirmary patient, 
it is necessary first, to be a freshman; 
second, to have a cold, and lastly, to 
be ill only three days, a Collegian 
reporter found out. 

Few patients come with Septeml)er, 
April, June, and Novemlxjr. but 
statistics show that in between, during 
the other six months of the College 
I year, the Infirmary serves the m^eds 
of nearly a dozen and one-half bed- 
patients and nearly two hundred out- 
patients each month. Octobc?r, Janu- 
ary, February and March are the 
busiest months, but with from one 
hundred to one hundred and fifty bed- 
patients and abfjut twenty-three hun- 
dred out-patients to be treated annu- 
ally at the Infirmary alone. Doctor 
Radcliffe and Machon, the resi- 
dent nurse, do not have to worry 
about periods of depression or loneli- 
ness. I 

The present Infirmy wa.s ere<ted in 
1915, at a cost of fiftf-en thousand ' 
dollars, and was designed to meet the 
needs of the institution at that time. ' 
Two years liefore, in 1913, an epidemic 
of scarlet fever had thrown the ad- 
ministration and the student body 
into a panic, and the twelve- bed 
structure was built to meet future 
emergencies. As the college grew, 
sickness increased proportionally. In 

« l*54» tiwirr i JMfrWBi twua» <^ 

1925, one of the busier years, one 
hundred and fifty-six students sp«!nt 
five hundred and eighty-three hospital 
days in the Infirmary, and in 1932, a 
banner year, one hundred and sixty- 
seven students were admitted as fjed- 
patients, but spent only five hundred 
and thirty- three hospital days. Draper 
Hall and the Memorial Building have 
I lx!en pres.sed into .service during the 
past thrw' years to «-are for the over- 
flow of students, and at last the ad- 
, ministration ha.s stjcured appropriations 
I for the construction of a new building 
which will have a m-iximum rapacity 
of forty patients. 

FreMliiii«'ii i^>nd 
Twenty jM-rcent of the patients are 
women, and although the co-eds are 
in the minority as far as total numbers 
are concerned, the fact remains that 
they are a healthy group. Upper- 
classmen do not spend much time in 
the Infirmary, but freshmen make 
themselves acquainted with its facili- 
ties at the first indication of illness. 
Although examination periods are the 
most popular with first year students, 
one hundred and ninety-one patients, 
most of them freshmen, flocked in in 
groups of ten during the last fifteen 
days of September to be treated for 
minor ills and disorders. During the

Ted Shawn and Group 
Show Rhythm in Dance 

_ — — — e 

(The following article is written by Bernard Stepner '37, who played in thl 
Boston Symphony Orchestra this summer. Mr. Stepner presents many nove 
observances about Shawn, as a portrayer of rhythm in the dance. — Editor's note.) 

A history of human progress in a 
single evening of the dance - from 
primitive tribal magic to the highest 
art-forms of modem times - this was 
the program of Ted Shawn and his 
group of men dancers in their recital 
in Bowker Auditorium last Friday 

Like the movements of an orchestral 
symphony, these danc€?H began with 
the incantations of savage tribes 
Indian, Maori, Dayak, and Sinhalese 
. — for success in fertility, hunting, 
war; they continued through man's 
early civilized forms of labor in field, 
in forest, and on the sea, up to his use 
of modem machinery. Then followed 
Shawn's artistic dance achievement, 
"The Hound of Heaven." A fourth 
movement presented themes of the 
people at play, including a Mule 
Team Driver's Dance to the acconn- 
paniment of whip-cracking, and a 
dance of pioneers in frontiersman cos- 
tume. The program culminated in a 
gi'iup of dances as a highly developed 
art-form, to music from three of the 
greatest classical composers, the 
"Three B's" Bach, Beethoven, 


This year's program of Shawn and 
his men dancers revealed yet a further 
development of the dancing art. The 
dances are constructed not only like 
the movements of an orchestral sym- 
phony, but they also abound in solo 
pas.'-ages similar to those of a concerto 
for a violin or piano with orchestral 
accompaniment. The solo dancer, 
generally Shawn him.self. comes in 
Hke a solo instrument performing 
alone, and then glides out, leaving the 
dance group to perform a passage 
similar to the orchestral interlude of 
a concerto. 

The llwuiid of lloaveii 

Th" above-mentioned re.semblance 
to a symphonic concerto for solo in- 
strument with orchestral accompani- 
ment is carried even further by 
Shawn's powerfully imaginative dance- 
solo, "The Hound of Heaven," con- 
ceived after the mystical poem of 
Francis Thompson. This pilgrim's 
progress of the Soul as it abides in 
any human being, from the highest to 
the humblest — seeking sati.sfaction 
in love, in children, in knowledge, in 
nature, and finding it at last only in 
self-surrender to the divine element 
within, is a universal autobiography. 
Profoundly moving in it.self, this 
dance-allegory comes midway in the 
evening's performance like the "ca- 
denza" of a concerto, that passage 
diiring which the orchestral accompani- 
ment stops and the'solo part continues 
in bursts of brilliant bravura playing. 

Mr. Shawn has been fortunate 
enough to find Jess Meeker, the com- 
poser, who is also his pianist. This 
young and fast-developing talent has 

put a wonderfully sensitive musical 
intelligence into the service of the 
dancer's art. In "The Hound of 
Heaven," Meeker is the composer of 
a pianoforte work which is stormy and 
at the same time haunted with pas- 
sionate melody. United with this 
composition is the full splendor of 
Shawn's art. 

Tlie I.4ibor Symphony 

Mr. Shawn declares that the de- 
velopment of machinery to replace 
labor of men and women has robbed 
us of much of the richness of human 
motion. Human movement is being 
replaced by machine movement, he 
says, just as men are being replaced 
by machines. Men-made machines 
which have made millions of people 
jobless have also deprived them of 
much that is beautiful and health- 

"The labor motif," says Shawn, "is 
one of the most important in the 
development of dances for men. Es- 
sentially masculine dances all over 
the world have had labor movements 
as one of their important sources of 
raw material. To be efficient, labor 
must be economical of movement, 
must do its work with just the neces- 
sary amount of tension and effort and 
no more, and with the proper amount 
of relaxation. That very economy of 
movement is synonymous with grace. 
Perhaps it is fair to say that there is a 
certain lieauty and of necessity a 
rhythmic pattern in the movement of 
machines. This we also try to show 
in our 'Labor Symphony'." 

Frnin the CliiM-sicN 

Shawn has hewn one of his living 
Parthenon pediments of male dancers 
out of the marble of Bach, Beethoven, 
and Brahms, even to distinguishing 
the very period of the music in the 
style of the dance it-self: Bach being 
austerely classical; Beethoven richly 
imaginative, and Brahms warmly emo- 

Musically, Shawn's setting to the 
dance form of Beethoven's herculean 
"Diabelli Variations" is daring and 
original. The story of how the music 
came to be composed is a whimsical 
one, quite characteristic of Beethoven. 
A publisher asked him to write a few 
variations on this theme of Diabelli 
to be done by a certain date. The 
theme amused Beethoven so intensely 
that he kept right on composing vari- 
ations up to the number of thirty- 
three, while the publisher wrung his 
hands pleading for the copy to be sent 
to the printer. Shawn has, of course, 
chosen only half a dozen of the varia- 
tions appropriate to the dance, but 
these are among the most brilliant of 
his numbers.

A prof looked up during his lecture 
and noticed that a student in a back 
seat slept soundly. "My good fellow," 
the prof cleared his throat, "if you 
want to sleep I'd rather have you do 
it at home." 

The student yawned, blinked, "Oh, 
OK." and left the room. 

We wonder why ...

To the Editor of the Collegian— 

The word "Wheat" is ever with us 
on this campus. Boor would be a one 
word definition of the term. It would 
be wise to remember that there are 
two classes of "wheats," however. 
There are the two-year wheats, and 
the four-year wheats, which fact is 
not generally acknowledged. In the 
conduct followed at the demonstra- 
tion by Ted Shawn this was clearly 

The rules promulgated by society 
indicate clapping as the means of 
expressing approval of an artist's 
performance. Whistling is the form 
of expression chosen by our "wheats" 
in this situation. Whistling is so much 
more clearly audible than clapping that 
it is probable they reserve the whistle 
for the epitome of praise. The taste 
is rather questionable, nevertheless. 
Shouting is merely a variation of the 
whistling theme, and the above re- 
marks apply to this also. 

There are other unwritten laws of 
society governing the dress for eve- 
ning wear. In more metropolitan 
areas, formal dress is correct for 
evening performances. Here, how- 
ever, this type of dress would not be 
particularly appropriate. We should 
at least wear a coat, shirt, and tie in 
the evening, if for no other reason than 
to differentiate ourselves from the 
haphazard attire of daytime wear. A 
sweater alone is scarcely correct at 
any time except in the privacy of a 
study, and even here, the preservation 
of caste would indicate otherwise. The 
proverb to the effect that "No-one 
will hold you any higher than you 
hold yourself" is applicable in this 

James Truslow Adams, in his 
Mucker Pose has written somewhat 
along the same lines. In this familiar 
essay, Adams says "... it is a loss 
when a man deliberately uses worse 
manners than he knows how to use, 
when he tries to cover up his intellec- 
tual abilities, or when he tries to be 
average when he is above it." 

We could well survey ourselves, and 
in the analysis, determine whether or 
not we are "mucker- poseurs." I am 
afraid that many of us would be 
astounded at our position in the self- 

I, for one, believe that if we are to 
engage capable jjerformers for our 
Social Union entertainments, we should 
refrain from unethical conduct. By 
the boorish attitude in our reception 
we not only insult the performers, but 
we definitely place ourselves in the 
category of the "wheat." If we cannot 
restrain our mucker attitude, then the 
Social Union committee should confine 
their choice of entertainers to second- 
rate magicians and burle.sque shows. 

The College can never rise above the 
general tone of the student body, and 
it is comparatively few individuals 
who lower the tone, and debase the 
tone of the institution itself. In fact, 
the individuals who maintain the 
mucker pose are the very individuals 
who do not read this column, and if, 
perchance, they do read it, they will 
not think upon it. They had best 
learn the philosopher's statement, 
"No-one should do that, which, if 
everyone did, would destroy society.'*

defeat, this time at the hands of 

The Derhymen, with four victories 
to their credit will enter the meet 
heavily favored to win and complete 
their unbeaten record. Stepat, Mur- 
ray, and Proctor have been the State 
leaders this year, and should give 
another good performance in Satur- 
day's meet. Gillette and 
should also give a good account of 
themselves in bringing down a victory.

For the third time this season. 
Captain Walter Stepat, Bob Murray, 
and Ray Proctor, star Maroon and 
White harriers, broke the taj)e, hand 
in hand, last Saturday, to lead the 
victory march over Worcester Tech 
for the Statesmen's fourth con.secutivc 
victory of a season as yet unspoiled 
by defeat. The Derhymen ea.sily 
carried off the meet by a score of 18 
to 37. 

The three State stand-bys took the 
lead early in the race and were never 
headed, finishing in a tie before the 
football crowd assembled on Alumni 

Three Worcester men, Moran, Mc- 
Kinley, and Bergstrom, tied for fifth 
and were the first visitors to cross the 
finish line. Gillette came in fourth to 
boost the State standing, with Bishop, 
Allen, and Bryant, the other States- 
men fini.shing eighth, twelfth, and 
thirteenth, respectively. 



Sophomores Star 

On Sabrina Eleven 

[Special from Amherst Student) 
After defeating a veteran Cardinal 
eleven by a wide margin at Middle- 
town last Saturday, the Sabrina foot- 
ball aggregation is once more pointing 
toward the traditional town struggle 
with the Mass. State eleven. Realizing 
that comparative scores and past 
records mean little in the town rivalry, 
the Jeffmen feel anything but confi- 
dent of the outcome.

How OtIierN Fared 

Amherst, exhibiting superior foot- 
ball, had no trouble vanquishing their 
Little Three rival, Wesleyan, at 
Middletown last Saturday, 37-7. Wes- 
leyan, defending the championship 
*on last year, put up a desperate 
battle for the first two periods, but 
*ere so greatly outclassed in the last 
Period that Amherst substitutes had 
no difficulty scoring. The Lord Jeffs 
scored first in the second period when 
f*agnotta made a field goal. But 
•^esleian came right back and .soon 
nad stored a touchdown and kicked 
'he extra point. However, the lead 
*as .'^Imrt lived as Debevoise, the 
Amherst end, took the ball from a 
backfit id man and raced around the 
''PPosiie end continuing on 49 yards 
'"fa touchdown. The score remained 
^^ same for the rest of the half al- 
'''ough Amherst threatened .several

With the exception of the fia.sco at 
Princeton, the Amherst eleven has 
managed to build up an enviable 
record, so far this season. The .sea.son 
opened in a driving rain with Connec- 
ticut State at Pratt Field, when the 
home team churned to a 22-0 victory 
with straight football featured. The 
next week at Princeton the Sabrina 
eleven was completely .swamped by 
the trick plays and fine coordination 
of the Tigers, seemingly unable to hold 
the score to reasonable bounds. 

Opening the home sea.son again, the 
JeflFmen registered a clean-cut victory 
over Union, 13-0. Although the 
Amherst team scored on two blocked 
punts, it outplayed the Union eleven 
in every department of the game. In 
this game the stalwart work of the 
ends, and Debevoise, as well as 
the hard-charging sophomore back- 
field combination were featured. 

The following Saturday saw a weak 
Rochester eleven go down in defeat, 
35-7, overwhelmed by a hard-charging 
Amherst backfield led by Captain 
Kehoe and featuring the stellar work 
of Mel Browning, sophomore halfback. 
Last Saturday the Amherst aggre- 
gation enjoyed an unexpectedly large 
.score at the of Wesleyan, 
showing a strength that la.sted the 
entire game and outwearing the Wes- 
men. Behind a strong line on which 
Debevoise and Fenn starred, the 
veteran backfield plunged through the 
Wesleyan forward wall time after 
time for substantial gains. Pattengill, 
Browning, and Snowball, all sopho- 
mores, were outstanding in the back- 
field, strongly supplemented by Cap- 
tain Kehoe and Kddie Brehm. 

The outstanding fact about the 
Amherst varsity this year has been 
the stellar performance of a large 
group of .sophomores both on the line 
and in the backfield. F'leming, guard, 
Cramer, tackle, and Kennedy, center, 
have done good service on the line all 
year, alternating in their positions with 
juniors and seniors. Colucci, another 
.sophomore guard, is out of the coming 
game with an injury sustained in the 
Wesleyan encounter. 

In the backfield, Pete Pattengill, 

sophomore halfback, rose to heights in 

the Wesleyan game and has played a

Saturday's football meeting with 
Amherst will be the 43rd in the .series 
which extends hack to 1881. The 
games have been held annually ex«-ept 
for a long cessation of rivalry iM'lween 
1907 and 1921.

reckoning of games won in this series, 
having l)een on the right side of the 
ledger 29 times to State's 9 while 
there have l)een four deadlocks. 

The Jeffmen have the longest string 
of con.secutive victories to their credit. 
In the six years from ■2r> to '.30 they 
cleaned up, and in the process ran up 
a total of 120 points while they wen' 
shutting out till- Statesmen in four of 
I hem and permitting lone .srore.s in 
the remaining two. 

On the other hand, the Mannin and

the last three battles Ijetween the 
town rivals. Whether or not this was 
merely coincidental with the coming 
of Coach Taul)e to State and the .«ub-

Playing host t() an undefeated 
.Sabrina soccer team this afternoon at 
3.00, the Briggsmen will lie the first 
of three .State teams to tackle an 
Amherst rival this week. Coach Kly 
Marsh has apparently built the Ih<^h(

game 1-0 at Hitchcock field. 

Amherst posse.sstw three high scoring 
men in the forward line, Klaer. inside 
left, Neilson, center, and Allis, out- 
side left, while Captain Phil Ward has 
frequently scored from center half. 
Their defense, with the excepti«>n of 
the gt>alie, .Shiels, is a bit shaky at 
times and cost the tie with Harvard. 
The team displays as a whole, exc;el- 
lent teamwork and c(M)rdination. 

Jim David.son, tricky dribbler and 
pas.ser, and Boh Hunter, State inside 
men, have done most of the Briggs 
scoring. Captain Jim Blackburn, a 
consistently heady player, can back 
up any department in the game. 
(Jeorge and Woixi have proven ade- 
quate defensive fullbacks when under 
pressure. Turner, who was unable to 
play against Fitchhurg, may again 
take the net against Amherst.

Recovering in the second half from 
an overwhelming Fitchhurg attack, 
the State hooters netted the hall twice 
to hold the Normal .School players to 
a 2-2 tie throughout two additional 
overtime periods. 

The first home game, played here 
last Saturday before a Dad's Day 
crowd, was the fastest and toughest 
the Maro<m and White have yet been 
in as the long drives of the green 
striped fullbacks and the running of the forward line continually 
drove .State back during the first half. 
A sweeping wind also prevented several 
scoring opportunities to both teams. 

Fitchburg's first score came early in 
the first period indirectly from a 
penalty kick against .Spring, the 
capable vi.siting goalie, for roughing a 
charger. He knocked the penalty 
drive over the net and State failed to 
convert from the corner. Then Ander- 
son, aided by high wind and slope 
sent the ball deep into Mansjn terri- 
tory where it was driven out of 
bounds. On the throw-in, John.son re- 
ceived the pass and angled it through 
the uprighU before the Briggsmen had 
returned down the field.

Thompson played a (jood game at 
fullback until he broke his thumb,

Like Mehitabel, the prima donna 
of Don Marquis, the Chinee-man is, 
for the most part, toujours gai. But 
there are times when he settles down 
to some back-fence philosophizing 
often to his sad distress. There was 
the day he burnt the leg out of the 
Dean's l)est trousers l)ecause he left 
the realm of reality in search for the 
old black cat in the dark cellar when 
there was no cat there. Now, when 
some little freshman comes around to 
discuss metaphysics, or the law of 
diminishing returns, the Chinee-man 
first makes certain to park his flat- 
irons in zones of safety. 

Materialism and mentalism, the 
philosophies of "nothing but," have 
come to the Chinee-man's attention 
these past few days. Serious, sad- 
faced, little neophytes troop mourn- 
fully from classics and gather at the 
Chinee-man's humble workshop. So 
far, he has heard stories of "nothing 
but time, space, matter and motion" 

"nothing but economics" ^"noth- 
ing but psychology" and the no 
less intolerant "nothing but spirit." 
It all gets very tiresome and boring. 
"Nothing but" is mean as well aa 
stupid. It lacks generosity. It is time 
to say again "not only, but also." 

The ('hinee-man r€;sorted to the 
Socratic method of attack ;the method 
is a hang-over from the ancient 
Creeks and Education 65; Cubberly 

page .so-and-so). When asked what 
the moon was to them, most of the 
apt students answered in the typical 
Lawrencian style, "The moon cer- 
tainly isn't a world like our own gone 
cold. It is a globe of dynamic sub- 
stance like radium or phosphorus 
coagulated on a vivid pole of energy." 
Up to only a few nights ago these 
self-same "nothing but" mourners had 
gloried in the light of the full moon. 
The moon was not only full then, but 
also beautiful; not only beautiful but divine, prompting certain in- 
tangible feelings feelings of peace 
or love or cold austerity; not only 
divine, but also. . . 

And, now, here they sat trying to 
resolve things down to the ultimate. 
They saw in man, for example, only 
the intellectual man, or only the

The Engineers recovered when a 
Carlson to Frawley pass was success- 
ful for a first down. Another line play 
and the period was over. 

Worcester opened the last session 
with a pass which was fin''ounded. A 
kick gained only ten yards and the 
Taubemen took the ball. Unsuccessful 
in two plays, Stewart got off a kick 
that carried 56 yards to the twenty- 
yard line. Germaine, by virtue of 
some excellent running, brought the 
ball back to the middle of the field. 
Five yards by Frawley set the stage for 
another Worcester pass. Carlson drop- 
ped back and got off a beautiful pass. 
Frawley made a one hand stop and 
completed the aerial for a first down 
but that was as far as the Engineers 
got. State took the ball on a fumble 
and after an unsuccessful pass, Stewart 
kicked to the six-yard line. Worcester 
took no chances and returned the kick. 
This started a State advance that 
brought the ball almost to the Tech 
goal line. The rest of the game was 
marked by desperate Worcester passes 
that gained the Engineers nothing. 
The Maroon and White stopped the 
air assault as Lapiiam intercepted a 
Worcester toss and carried the ball to 
the 11-yard line. Freddy Murphy 
reeled off eight yards around right end 
and almost made a touchdown. But 
State lost the ball on downs and 
Worcester began a last minute effort 
to score via the aerial route. Filip- 
kowski grabbed one of these passes 
and raced untouched the fifteen yards 
for another score. Nietupski, with a 
place kick, added the extra point and 
the game ended shortly afterwards. 

Stewart was the main offensive 
force of the Taubemen, his passing, 
kicking and running accounting for 
most of the gains. Bob Peckham and 
Jack Koenig were outstanding in the 
Maroon and White backfield while 
Captain Schaffner, Bernstein, Mulhall,

lights in the line. Germaine, Dann, \

Sickness apparently returns at defi- 
nite periods, and the four-year cycle 
seems to be in vogue. That may, 
however. l)e due to the fact that the 
average student can either afford to 
be ill only once in four years, or lie- 
comes suftii'iently curious to accept 
the hospitality of the establishment 
only once during his college career. 
ColdM .MoNt Coniinoii 
Epidemics are a thing of the past. 
In 1913, the entire student body left 
the college to escape an attack of 
scarlet fever. Twenty-five severe cases 
of the disease were treated, and the 
campus was left deserted for a con- 
siderable period. Three years ago, an 
epidemic of infantile paralysis swept 
the Connecticut Valley, but only five 
cases of the disease were contracted 
at the College. These five were of 
the mild form, were recognized in the 
early stages, treated, and no paralysis 
occurred. Rut one case of scarlet fever 
has been recorded since 1930, and the 
majority of sickness has lieen due t<» 
the common cold. 

A combination of bronchial-penu- 
monia and a broken leg confined one 
senior to the infirmary for a record of 
sixteen days, but the average period 
of time a bed-patient remains is three 
and one-tenth days. The first day is 
marked by "Don'ts": don't study, 
don't read, don't talk; on the second 
day, the average patient begins to read 
and to listen to the radio which the 
Senate has installed; and the third 
day is usually one of "date making" 
to celebrate the patient's release. 

The average physician gives ear to 
the troubles of about five hundred 
clients, while Doctor Radcliffe and 
Miss Machon administer to the physi- 
cal and mental needs of fourteen 
hundred people. One doesn't live on 
a college campus for four years with- 
out having some experiences, and 
Miss Machon has had her share. Some 
I of the patients are sick, some believe 
themselves sick, and some need merely 
the comforting of a mother or sister. 
The majority of students are in good 
spirits after the first day, and make 
the most of their stay. Others object 
strenuously. One freshman, running 
a temperature and showing all signs of 
having a nasty cold, reported to ! 
Doctor Radcliffe. The doctor advised 
him to go to the Infirmary. The 
student was thoroughly convinced 
that he did not want to visit the 
Infirmary, but after a bit of urging 
he condescended. One night was 

sufficient, and the next morning when 
the Doctor told him that he might 
g<». the patient had t,ei(>me so well 
pleased with his new environment that 
he insisted on staying.

Mr. Shawn has drawn also on mtulern 
composers Prokofieff. f<»r a gay and 
witty .satire; Stiherbatcheff, for an 
Aristo|)hanic clmrus in the style of the 
Attic "old comedy"; and American 
folk tunes, for a group of native 
American dances. In the Prokofieff, 
Mr. Barton Mumaw performed his 
solo with ccmsummate art. 

"(inosienne," a Shawn solo, is 
danced to the music by Erik Satie. 
Evoked out of the past, it is the 
dance of a priest before the altar of 
the Snake-Goddess of ancient Crete. 
The choreography represents a flat

Only those who have seen the native 
Spanish or American folk dances can 
know what Mr. Shawn and his dancers 
give us. Thus it is said of Mr. Shawn 
that he is more Spanish than the 
Spaniard, for he adds a grace and 
distinction which only the most gifted 
and highly trained can bring. Native 
dances are but the spontaneous ex 
pression of a people, often of a mo- 
notonous repetition of their simple 
pattern, whereas Shawn through his 
selection from many a native dance, 
weaves them into a complete design. 
He has turned to the folk-lore and 
rhythms of the American Indian who 
is indigenous to this continent, as 
well as to those settlers who have 
built the American nation. I 

Shawn and Him DancorN 
As with most dancers, years of work ' 
have here and there thickened Mr. I 
Shawn. Though he may not believe 
it, he was most the fine figure of a 
well-muscled man when he was fully 
clothed. This great dancer bounds 
not so high or so airily as do young 
Russians, while he relies over-insist- 
ently upon weight and drive of motion. 
To state this is not to imply that Mr. 
Shawn is always bulk and force. On 
the contrary, his Spanish dance did 
not lack moments of finesse and mas- 
culine grace. Again, as the leader of 
the Beethoven variations, Shawn was 
light-paced and sportive. With him, 
as formerly with Mme. Pavlova, the 
readiness remains, but now it must be 

To several numbers, Mr. Shawn and 
his ^ dancers added .some resuming 
variations of the ended dance. Many 
times, both the leader and his troupe, 
instead of giving the conventional 
bows of acknowledgment, now culti- 

vated a pretty concil. When he was 
applaud.'d for his Cretitn <lance.

of the minor axes. These gardens, 
each of which is ten feet square, range 
in scojx' from a formal penthouse 
garden to a naturalistic woodland 

One of the unusual features of this 
show will Ih! a display of ikebana or 
Japanest? floral arrangements, set up 
by Mrs. Yoki Kyojima. 

This year, memlKjrs of the women's 
garden clubs all over Massachusetts 
have been invited to attend the show 
on Saturday. During their visit Mrs. 
Kyojima will demonstrate methods of 
Japanese floral arrangement. 

Great changes and improvements 
have been wrought since the first 
horticultural show was held in Wilder 
Hall. April 23-25, 1908. It was en- 
tirely under the direction of former 
Prof. E. A. White of the floriculture 
department, whose purpose was to 
better acquaint the students with 
varieties of flowers which could be 
grown in the vicinity. In 1916 the 
Holyoke and Northampton Florists' 
and Gardeners' clubs began to hold 
their annual show in conjunction with 
the college exhibits. The union was a 
happy one for the combination of the 
college theory with the actual practice 
of the commercial growers could be 
readily seen. 

Last year the plan of the show was 
greatly changed and made much more 
effective. Within the cage was an 
enormous radial garden, in the middle 
of which was a huge pylon of black 
and white, surmounted with white 
Turner chrysanthemums and flanked 
at the base with red cedars, vases of 

yellow and white Turner chrysanthe- 
mums and trays of apples. The pylon 
was illuminated with floodlights. 

The show is largely managed by a 
student committee, aided by a faculty 
advisory board. The faculty hoard is 
compo.sed of l'rofus.sor Clark Thayer, 
chairman, head of the department of j 
horticulture; Dr. Frank A. Waugh. 
head of the department of landscape 
architecture; Professor Kobert P. j 
Holdsworth, head of the department 
of forestry; Prof. Fred C. Sears, head 
of the department of pomology; Grant 
H. Snyder, assistant professor ofj 
olericulture; Dr. Walter W. Cheno- ' 
weth, head of the department of ^ 
horticultural manufactures. 

Those on the student committee are: 
Emil J. Tramposch, chairman; Law- 
rence M. Packard, pomology; Paul 
W. Schaffner, forestry; Daniel J. 
Foley, landscape architecture; Joseph 
F. Keil. floriculture; Robert V. Mur- 
ray, horticultural manufactures; 
George A. Hartwell, programs; John 
P. Veerling, signs; I^eslie C. Kimball,

of the store.

strii)ed forward, almost retaliated 
when, slipping with Norris in the mud, 
he was tempted to send the ball in 
with his hands. 

In the last quarter. State contrived 
to keep the ball well in foreign terri- 
tory until finally Hunter trickled a 
stray ball into the strings to make the 
final and tieing s(rore of the game. 

Both teams put forth a vain final 
spurt of brilliant playing in the over- 
time sessions. Although State took 
the offensive lead in the first and 
Fitchburg in the second period, and 
both teams swarmed at times about 
the others arera, the goalies pre- 
vented any scoring.

evening, November 19, for their winter 
play, to l)e presented late in February. 
The play to be presented this year is

November 3, 1934 will go down in the history of this College as one of its 
most proud and most memorable days. Last Saturday, in every sense of the 
words was "Massachusetts State's Day!" From the moment the golden sun 
rose over the Holyoke hills, until it cast its final beam from the western hori- 
zon events occurred at this institution, in which every student, alumnus, and 
faculty member, should find deep satisfaction. The impressive comer-stone 
exercises at Goodell Library and at Thatcher Dormitory; the marvelous, 
record-breaking Horticultural Show; the sensational football victory over 
Amherst; and last, but not least, the unprecedented defeat of the Amherst 
cross-country team; all combined to establish last Saturday as a most memo- 
rable day in the annals of Massachusetts State College history.

To the Editor: 

When the alma mater was plHycd 
at the game today, I was quite im- 
pressed by the lack of respect dis- 
played in the attitudes of several 
students. I had always believed it 
customary for men to remove their 
hats at such a time. I grant that it is 
possible and easy for a person to 
forget it for a moment — - though not 
through the whole song — but I stt 
no excuse for replacing a hat or oser- 
looking a reminder. Even farmers 
usually know better.

That this College has a fighting football eleven was most convincingly evi- 
dent in the spectacular brand of football presented by our Maroon and White 
team, in downing a highly-touted opponent, Amherst, on Alumni Field last 
Saturday, 16-9. Up to the Amherst game, the record of the State eleven had 
been mediocre, victories over Connecticut State and Worcester Tech; de- 
feated by Williams and Rhode Island State, and a scoreless tie with Bowdoin. 
The team, hard-hit by a series of injuries to regulars, had plodded through the 
first five games playing mediocre football. Every player was trying hard, but 
the cooperation so necessary for a smooth, powerful offense, was not evident. 
Things looked quite gloomy for the Maroon and White as the Amherst game 
drew near. Amherst, after an expected defeat from Princeton, had beaten 
decisively all of its opponents, and looked to the Massachusetts State game 
as another setup. Press reports gave the information that the Amherst coach 
was doing his best to keep down over-confidence on the part of his players. 
At this College, all was quiet from the football camp. The coaching staff 
quietly prepared for the coming struggle. The coach injected into his players, 
a spirit of confidence and enthusiasm, he worked hard on new combinations 
to strengthen a ragged running attack, and he and his players waited, and 
said nothing. But from the moment of the first kickoff, Massachusetts State's 
eleven, fighting hard and fast, held the upper hand, over their much-bewildered 
opponents. Under the capable direction of Jack Sturtevant, the Maroon and 
White offense, which in former games had displayed but a semblance of power, 
turned into a veritable powerhouse of ground gainers, headed by the brilliant 
Koenig. John Stewart, who had been the stand-out player all year, again 
was the most dangerous man on the field with his wonderful kicking, passing 
and running attack. The line, headed by the scrappy captain, Paul Schaffner, 
played the Amherst players literally into the dirt, and the hard line play 
reached a climax, when Dave Rossiter, State center, smashed his way into 
the Sabrina backfield to block a kick, and to recover the ball to pave the way 
for a State touchdown. Yes, indeed. It was a great football game, between 
two fighting football elevens. But it was Massachusetts State Day. Con- 
gratulations to a fighting team and to a hard-working coaching staff. 

The Corner Stone Exercis*'** 

On last Saturday, two most important steps were made in the progress of 
the physical equipment of this institution. After a quest of thirty-two years 
this College now has a modem, and adequate library Goodell Library. 
Massachusetts State also now has a large men's dormitory, Thatcher Hall, 
which should do much to increase the educational situation at the College. 
Massachusetts State is not a static institution. It is fortunate enough to be 
headed by the aggressive, energetic, Hugh P. Baker, who in his brief sojourn 
as president, has accomplished many progressive achievements, the most 
outstanding being his successful demands from Federal money for the con- 
struction of the two new buildings. However, President Baker is not satisfied, 
he is making a stronger effort than ever before to obtain additional funds 
with which to increase both the physical equipment and the instructional staff 
of our College. The College has progressed remarkably under the reign of 
President Baker. It has established itself more firmly as an educational 
institution. We believe the progress will continue in the future.

Twelve Coll<^eM Enter for 
ArmiHtice Day Run 

With an undefeated season behind 
them, the Massachusetts State College 
iros.H-country team goes to Boston 
this coming Monday to compete in 
the New F]ngland Intercollegiate 
iros.s country meet. The seven men 
who will represent State are Captain 
.Stepat, Bob Murray, Ray Proctor, 
(lordon Bishop, Bill Gillette, Bryant, 
und Sampson. 

This year Coach Derby has hopes 
of seeing his charges round out a 
hiinner year by making a better 
.showing, than ever before, in this 
meet which brings together the best 
tross-country talent from all corners 
of New England. Twelve teams, in 
all, will attempt to carry off the honors 
for their alma maters. From Maine, 
Hates, Colby, Bowdoin. and the Uni- 
versity of Maine will represent the 
State. Rhode Island State College 
will be down from Kingston, and the 
University of New Hampshire har- 
riers, the winners of last year's meet, 
will attempt to defend their title. 
Connecticut State College will also 
have its representative team at the 
meet. The rest of the teams, M.I.T., 
Northeastern, Springfield, Tufts, and 
.Mass. State are all from Massachu- 

Murray, Stepat, and Proctor ought 
to make a good showing for the 
•Maroon and White. Stepat, however 
ha,s Im^ n bothered by a bad leg, and 
"nles.M the ailment is healed by Mon- 
•^'i.v. the State captain may be hin- 
dered in the race. In the event that 
Murray and Proctor are both up to 
top form, the Statesmen's score may 
t* boosted considerably. 

The University of Maine team will 
fn'er the meet favored to win. The 
Maine outfit has been undefeated this 
*a»on, and in the course of its meets, 
has di feated a strong team from the 
l^mv.raity of New Hampshire. The 
'^'ack twins, and Hunnewell, fresh- 
'"an \v inner last year, are the Maine 
dt^P»n<iable8. All three of these run- 
"fra have shown themselves to be far 
^tter than average. 

Cliff Veysey of Colby, however, 
*ill In the individual on whom all 
f>«« will be turned on Monday. The 
'ad fr<,:n Maine is by far the outstand- 
"K in the contest, having been 
•"idef, ited all season, and numbering 
amont t his triumphs, a victory over 
'he Lni\ ersity of Maine mnners.

Five StateMinen FiiiiNh Hand in 

With five men crossing the line to- 
gether to chalk up a perfect score. 
State's harriers thoroughly trounced 
Amherst's cross-country squad, 15-48, 
last Saturday, and completed an un- 
defeated season. Stepat, Murray, 
Proctor, Bishop, and Gillette easily 
placed in a quintuple tie for first 

In finishing their run before the 
half of the Amherst football game, 
the Statesmen were never greatly 
pressed. Twichell was the first Am- 
herst man to finish, coming in in 
sixth place, when he beat out Bryant 
of State. Sampson, a newcomer to 
State cross-country ranks, who until 
Saturday was a member of the junior 
varsity, finished in eighth place, to 
complete the State scoring. Captain 
Minnick of Amherst, who followed, 
was the second Jeff'man to cross the 

State was last represented by an 
undefeated cross-country team in 1926, 
and in that year, the Derbymen also 
made a perfect score against Amherst. 
In this year's undefeated season, the 
Statesmen have shown definite su- 
periority over every rival. In three 
meets, Stepat, Murray, and Proctor, 
the mainstays of the team, finished 
hand-in-hand far ahead of any rivals. 
In another meet, Murray was the 
individual winner, and in the final 
meet of the season, last Saturday, the 
State boys had five men across the 
line before a single Amherst man 

to be contented with eleventh, and in 
1928 they did somewhat better, being 
ninth. The Derbymen didn't enter 
the meet again until 1931, and in that 
year only four men finished, giving 
the team no point standing. I,.ast year 
eighth place was the best the State 
runners could get. 

In previous years the State teams 
have been hindered by the five-mile 
length of the Franklin Park course. 
This year, however, the course has 
been shortened to four miles, and on 
the shorter route, the Derbymen 
should do much better than ever be- 
fore. Another factor which will aid 
the State harriers, is that they have 
competed on the same course once 
before this year, in the meet against 

The State group will leave for 
Boston Sunday afternoon, arriving in 
time to walk over the Park course, 
and become acquainted with the 
obstacles which will face them on the 
following day. 

State's gridiron men, rejuvenated 
after their smashing triumph over the 
Sabrina eleven last Saturday, now 
look forward to what promises to be a 
stiff" tussle with the Northeastern 
University outfit on Alumni Field 
next Saturday. Inasmuch as this is 
only N«)rtheast<»rn'a second year of 
varsity football, this will be the first 
gridiron meeting between the two 
colleges. The Husky outfit, unde- 
feated to date with six games played, 
will be no means be a walkover for 
the Maroon and White as might l>e 
expected after the showing the latter 
made against the Jeffs. Furthermore, 
the performance of the Red and White 
in each of these games indicates that 
their activities are no mere flashes in 
the pan. 

Coach Al McCoy's charges opened 
the season with an impressive victory 
27 to 6, over the American Inter- 
national College. The following week 
they were set back by an unexpected 
13-all tie at the hands of a small 
Alfred College team. 

The next week the Huskies rose to 
great heights in beating (3olby College 
13 to 6. The game was hard fought 
throughout and only after C:«lhy had 
tied it up at 6 all by a long pass in the 
last quarter, did the Huskiea cash in 
on their fine play. 

Khode iNland lAtut'H ((-0 
The Boston team again played 
Class A football the w(>ek after 
against Rhode Island State, winning 
6 to 0. When it is taken into account 
that this same Rhode Lsland outfit 
beat Mass. State 7 to 0, the North- 
eastern team cannot be dismissed as 
trifling. Superb punting by Hart, 
Husky fullback, wuh evident through- 

In the last two games, the Mct'oy 
coached eleven simply ran rings around 
their opponents with counts of 26-0 
and 31-6 against I^well Textile and 
Arnold respectively. It is a point 
worthy of mention that the Red and 
Black has scored first in every varsity 
game since the inauguration of the 
sport at N.U. two years ago. The 
Husky outfit has shown notable weak- 
ness in their pass defense which, in- 
asmuch as State's oA'cnse is almost 
wholly passing, points with favor to 
the Statesmen. On the other hand, 
the former has done exceptionally well 
in their own passing game and has 
proven more formidable in thia respect 
than has State. 

Two Cnpahlp I'awterH 

In Ray Pelletier and Stew May- 
berry, Coach McCoy has two of the 
best pass-flingers in the small college 
class. The feature of the games to 
date has been the work of Pelletier 
and Jay Hart, sophomore backs. The 
work of these two has forced McCoy 
to keep two veterans on the bench as 
reserves. Captain Dick Mitchell and 
Bill Benjamin have starred on the 
defense in protecting their respective 
positions at the ends of the line.

ing of the Commonwealth, to express 
the appreciation of the Commonwealth, 
and her people for the sort of education 
that is being given here, I am here 
today. Education only reaching a 
certain point is dangerous, but educa- 
tion pursued as it should be to the 
fuller knowledge and understanding of 
the relations of men to each other is 
the salvation of our civilization, and 
it is to the perpetuation of the idea 
that this corner stone has been laid 
firmly and solidly and constructively 

For the second time in two years, 
the Amherst hooters barely gained a 
scanty one-point win from the Briggs- 
men last Thursday afternoon in an 
evenly matched and hard fought 
game. Playing equal, if not superior 
ball, the Maroon and White squad 
remained tied l-l with an undefeaU'd 
Jeff" combine through the largest part 
of the game, only to have a goal by 
Walbridge come through with hut two 
minutes to play. 

Outstanding during the game was 
the wretched condition of the field 
that prevented any consistently good 
ball by either side. A rain in the 
morning had turned the lower east 
end of the pitch into a sea of mud that 
offered footing neither for running nor 
kicking. As the sun and a strong wind 
were alst) in this direction, the team 
defending this goal was at a decided 
disadvantage, and all goals were made 

State first to score, converted early 
in the first quarter when Kennedy, 
outside right, received a long paas 
from the center and drove it cleanly 
into the net from thirty yards with no 
interference from anyone. The Hriggs- 
men continued their attack through- 
out the period but the tables were 
turned with the next quarter. 

Amherst took the offensive and the 
Statesmen were unable to hoot the 
hall up the muddy field. However, 
the State defense was able to dispose 
of a string of six corner kicks, the 
JofTs usual scoring point, without any 
casualties and seemed well able to 
maintain their one point lead. Neil- 
son, leading scorer for Amherst, how- 
ever, got his chance to drive one in 
during a muddle in front of the goal. 
The sum must have gone behind a 
cloud when the H«?cond half Iwgan, for 
although .State, led by David.son's 
clever dribbling, frequently broke 
through the Marshmen's defense, the 
goalie was able to recover all shots and 
the Mar<Min and White retired 8t;ore- 

Amherst, even with the west end of 
the field to defend, was hard presH(>d 
at times during the last quarter and 
it apix^ared that overtime would l>e 
necessary. In the last minute of play, 
Walbridge, right inside, found the net 
for the final score. 

State's defense, both full and half- 
backs functioned smoothly with 
Blackburn and CJeorge judging the 
play to break up any dangerous pass- 
ing. Amherst's stars were Alier- 
crombie and Ward, halfbacks, and 
Neilson and Mahoney in the forward

At Goodell Library, Former Presi- 
dent Butterfield, spoke of the efforts 
of Dr. Henry H. Go<idell, both as 
librarian and president of the college, 
to build a library of which the college 
is justly proud. "For fourteen years 
he was the librarian of the college and 
its leading spirit for a longer period. 
It was his belief that the library was 
the pivot on which the college turns, 
and should Ix; the very center of 
college life. Not only is it a place for 
required reading and assigned work, 
but it is a part of the campus for 
recreational relaxation. The atmos- 
phere should be one in which the 
students are able to concentrate easily 
thus making the tasks interesting and 

Playing an inspired game of foot- 
ball, the Maro(»n and White gridmen 
overran an Amherst outfit, 16 to 9, 
to score a smashing victory over their 
town rivals. The Taul)emen up.Het all 
the pre-game dope by throwing Am- 
herst back on their htH'ls and exhibit- 
ing an offease that liad the Ix)rd Jeffs 
completely bewildered. This game, 
marking the 39th annual conflict be- 
tween the town rivals, found the 
StaU^smen showing their su|H>riority 
in all departments, with Jack Km«nig 
standing «)ut in the running gume and 
Johnny Stewart turning in his usual 
excellent kicking and passing. 

State was the first to score, counting 
in the first peritxl. Koenig. taking the 
ball on the 29-yard line. rac«Hl around 
the end continuing 20 yards Iw-fore he 
was finally pulled down. Two tries at 
the line resulted in no gain and Johnny 
Stewart dropiM'd back to pass. But 
the pass was t«M> high for Sturtevant 
to get and fell untouchcHi. Tlu-n .State 
took advantag*' of their first oppor- 
tunity to score. With Boh I'eckham 
holding the ball, IVU' Nietupski 
place-kicked a field goal and State 
went into a three jxiint l««ad. 

JeflN l>ii|»iieale Fiehl Goal 
Shortly afUsr the start of the se<!ond 
st'ssion the JefTmen evened the count 
when I'agnotta counted a field goal. 
Following the kick off and an exchange 
of punts, Amherst put on their one 
successful march for a score. A lat(>ral 
pass from Pagnotta to Pattengill re- 
sulted in a twenty-yard advance. On 
the next play, Kehoe started off around 
right end and, with perfect interfer- 
ence, continued across the goal line. 
I'agnotta's try f.)r jxjint after toucrh- 
down went wide of the mark and the 
JefTmen had a six-p«iint advantage. 

But that was the signal for the un 
covering of the Maroon and White 
pa.Hsing attack. Two long passes fri)m 
Stewart to Davis meant 47 yards and 
a score. Bill Mulhall easily made g(,od 
the extra point. After that Amherst 
met with no success. The Taulx-men 
showed a brand of defense that has 
b<'t'n lacking in other games this year 
and their hard-hitting offense kept 
Amherst on the defensive.

I^te in the third [>eri(Mi, Djive 
Rossiter broke through the line and 
broke up an Amherst attempt for 
another field goal and recovertHi the 
hall on the ,38-yard marker. Stewart 
punched out a couple of yards and the 
JefTmen were assess<;d l.'i yards giving 
the Statesmen a first down on the

yards through tackle. Stewart then 
faded back and heaved a beautiful 
aerial that fell into the waiting hiinds 
of Terry Adams on the six-yard line. 
Amherst was penalized five yards 
and the ball w»is advanced to the one- 
yard line and Sturtevant carried it 
over on the next play. Mulhall's

The rt!st of the gam<! was charac- 
terized by desperate Amherst attempts 
to store, with .Snowball d«»ing most of 
the ball carrying. The JefTmen were 
successful in re«;ling off" aulwlantial 
gains at times but as soon as they 
advanced into .State territory, the 
Tauljemen put up a defense that 
netted them the ball. Substitute after

by Amherst in a vain endeavor to get 
a scoring combination.

Sigma Beta Chi will hold a "vie"

The following alumnae of Sigma

The formal layout was carried out 
in the displays, designed by senior 
landscape architecture students, which 
served as termini to the cross walks. 
Whereas three of the features were of 
garden designs, a fourth, hy John P. 
Veerling, a bowl of chry.santhemums 
on a pedestal set against a background 
of a revolving colored spiral disk, was 
bizarre. The exhibits of Edward 
Masters, William Scott and Daniel 
Foley, and Lawrence Packard were in 
keeping with the garden design of the 

Again this year the 100 square fet;t 
displays staged by students showed 
skill in conception and execution. 
Experts could find only minor faults 
w th the first prize exhibit of Liiwrence 
Packard and Simmons to grade it any- 
thing but perfect. It represented a 
woodland waterfall with fern and moss 
covered cliffs. Little difference in 
excellence could be seen in this display 
and the second prize winner of Benja- 
min Wihry and Kenneth Steadman. 
Their swamp scene was planted with 
very appropriate material, only the 
edge of the bog being slightly severe.

Pnjfes.sor DeSilva and his stall dI

display of R. Holman Wood called 
New England Nature was more fx-r- 
fectly done than its third award would 
indicate. The scene with its rail fence 
running through a typical New Kng- 
land pasture was staged with much 
finish. Unfortunately, all the exhibits 
under the balcony couldn't be seen to 
best advantage because of poor light- 

In another class the exhibits were 
formal in character. This type of 
display was apparently more difficult 
to stage because the entries were not 
so uniformly well done as those in the 
informal class. Nevertheless the first 
prize winner, a penthouse nook, de- 
signed by William Schlaefer, had merit. 

The choicest feature of the entire 
show was the Ikebana exhibit ar- 
ranged by Mrs. Yuki Kyojima of 
Tokyo. It is questionable if better 
Japanese flower arrangements could 
be seen anywhere else in the country. 
The details for having this display at

Statesmen had a three-point lead. 

Nietupski kicked off and play re- 
started from the Amherst 30-yard 
marker. Pattengill tried the line but 
Rossiter downed him for a gain of a 
yard. Pagnotta took the ball on the 
next play and Koenig stopped him 
with a smashing tackle as the period 
ended. In the first session, Amherst 
did not have possession of the ball in 
State territory at any time. The 
nearest they could get was the 43- 
yard line.

The second canto opened with 
Pattengill kicking off. Two tries at 
the line by Koenig gained a few yards, 
and Stewart kicked to Pagnotta, who 
was forced out of bounds by Lapham 
on the forty-six yard line. Amherst 
was set back a few yards when Adams 
broke through to make the tackle. 
Kehoe passed on the next play to Coey 
who raced to the 12-yard marker 
before he was downed by Allen. But 
here the Sabrina attack stalled against 
the hard-fighting State defense and the 
Lord Jeffs decided to try a field goal. 
Pagnotta made the kick and it sailed 
true between the cross bars to knot 
the count.

of punts and State again had the ball

Two plays with no gain led the Jeff- 
men's attempt to duplicate their field 
goal of the first period. Pagnotta 
attempted a kick from placement but 
Dave Rossiter came through the line 
to block the kick and recover the ball 
on the 40-yard line. Then began a 
determined State advance that Am-

Stewart and Koenig combined with 
an Amherst penalty gave State first 
down on the 38-yard line. Koenig 
made a yard on the next play and 
Stewart heaved an aerial to Adams 
that netted the Taubemen 35 yards.

Sturtevant put it over on the next 
play. Mulhall's try for point was 

State kicked and Amherst started 
an attack of their own that netted 
them two first downs before the period 
came to an end. 

75 Yard Kick 

Amherst opened the last canto with 
a pass. Then Brehm kicked out of 
bounds one foot from the State goal 
line. Stewart, standing in the end 
zone, got off a beautiful boot that 
traveled 75 yards. The Jeffmen started 
an attack with Snowball doing the 
ball-carrying that brought them to the 
middle of the field before they were 
forced to kick. 

Stewart took the kick for 11 yards 
and Koenig and Stewart made a 
couple of more yards between them 
before Johnny kicked. Two rushes 
by Snowball made an Amherst first 
down but Allen broke up the next 
play when he threw Pattengill for a 
five-yard loss. Amherst kicked to the 
State 40-yard line. Stewart and 
Koenig alternated in carrying the ball 
on the next plays but did not make 
the first down and Stewart kicked over 
the goal line.

State 16, Amherst 9. 

Every man on the Maroon and 
White team played a great game and 
no individual stars were outstanding. 
Ktjenig was the Statesmen's biggosl 
ground gainer, time after time reeling 
off yardage around the ends and 
through tackle. Stewart was Ihe star 
as far as passing and kicking was con- 
cerned, his 75-yard hoot from behind 
the goal line begin outstanding. Allen's 
blocking was exceptional while Sturte- 
vant played his usual excellent game. 
Adams, Ro-ssiter, Cuzowski, Schaffner 
and Nietupski excelled in the line for 
State, Rossiter'a blocking of an Am- 
herst field goal attempt and Nietup- 
ski's place-kicking being a big factor 
in the State scoring, while Adams 
u.sually nailed the opj>onents runback 
of Stewart's kicks. 

Snowball and Pattengill were the 
outstanding memlH>rs of the Sabrina 
backfield while English and De- 
Bevoise proved their worth on defense. 
State played a first class game in not 
being penalized a yard, and running 
up twelve first downs.

Reginald S. ('arey, florist of South 
Hadley Falls, won first prizes in 
classes A and H. In A, M. J. 
Connor of the State (-ollege placed 
second. Connor won the prize for 
the best bloom in the show. These 
exhibits were staged in the section of 
the Holyoke and Northampton Flor- 
ists' and (lardeners* ('lub. 

Design played an important and 
effective part in the fruit and vege- 
table displays. A long bank of apples 
set up by the South Amherst F'ruit 
Growers won the blue ribbon from 
the Massachusetts State Department 
of Agriculture. 'I'he apples in Ixixes 
made a colorful pattern. 

Squashes and pumpkins were used 
by the Department of Vegetable 
Gardening to make a design in green 
and gold. This work was done under 
the direction of I'rofessor Grant B. 

The difficulties in setting up the 

map of Massachusetts, made from 
cranberries, could hardly be realized 
from the finished product. In this 
display, also staged by the Depart- 
ment of Pomology, were cornucopia 
designs in apples. An extensive variety 
display of apples was also set up by 
the department headed by I'rofes.sor 
Fred ('. Sears. 

The products of the Department of 
Horticulture Manufactures were temp- 
tingly displayed. Much amusement 
centered around the huge revolving 
apple in which there were miniature 
tableaux seen through cut-outs. 

More than pas.sing mention should 
be made of the water colors of Stephen 
Hamilton which were exhibited in the 
balcony. He too, was responsible for 
the painting of the (Jonnecticut Valley 
which formed the background of the 
Department of Forestry exhibit. 

A clever paper towel stone wall was 
employed in the winter garden set up 
j by the Stockbridge School students 
I under the direction of L. L. Hlundell. 
A busy spot in the show was the 
store operated by students. This is an 
unusual feature to be found at a 
horticultural show and yet it proved 
to be a profitable one under the able 
direction of R. K. Kvans. The show 
reflected the efficiency of the general 
chairman, K. J. Tramposch and his 
commit ti>e and, of course, that of 
Professor Clark L. Thayer, who was 
an untiring manager from beginning 
to end.

As the result of an extensive com- 
petition five new members were ap- 
pointed to the editorial board of the 
Mussachusetts Collegian. The follow- 
ing students were appointed: Rodger 
C. Smith of Amherst and Philip B. 
Shiff of Dusbury, from the sophomore 
class, Julian H. Katzeif of Brookline, 
Maxwell L Klayman of South Boston 
and Frederick B. Lindstrom of Palmer 
from the freshman class. 

These five have been chosen from 
a group of thirty-one who entered the 
competition to fill vacancies on the 
editorial staff at the first meeting held 
on Tuesday, Sept. 25. This group 
consisted of six juniors, two sopho- 
mores, and twenty-three freshmen.

Itesponding to the appeal made by a 
representative of the Hampshire Coun- 
ty Red Cross committee, the State 
College students began their annual 
drive which will be conducted for a 
week, beginning November 13. The 
annual report of the Hampshire Coun- 
ty Red Cross stressed particularly 
the home service work, especially the 
disabled veterans' work, being done by 
this chapter. There was also read at 
this meeting of the county chapter the 
reports of the activities carried on by 
the voluntary corp, the school nurses, 
the dental clinic, and the production 
committee, as typical Red Cross 

l^st year the Red Cross drive also 
included the drive for funds for un- 
employment relief and social service 
work, but this year there will be a 
separate drive for the benefit of the 
latter cause. 

The drive is being conducted by a 
group of students appointed by the 
presidents of the four classes, with 
about ten or twelve solicitors to a 
class. Contributions will be sought 
from every member of the student 
Ixxiy, the minimum subscription being 
fifty cents. 

Index Board Plans 
Many Innovations 

Plans for the 1935 Index are now 
complete and a considerable portion 
of the work necessary for the comple- 
tion of preliminary details has been 
accomplished, according to W. Gor- 
don Whaley '36, the editor-in-chief of 
the book. The members of the year- 
book's board and staff have announced 
a number of innovations and changes 
which they are making in the book, 
which they are preparing under the 
supervision of their faculty advisor. 
Dr. Maxwell H. Goldberg. 

The Index will have a literary theme 
this year, the nature of which has 
not been divulged by the board. 
Leonta G. Horrigan '36, who has been 
appointed an associate editor, will 
take charge of the details in regard to 
this theme, and Dorothy Nurmi '36

Joseph W. Bartlett of Lynn was re- 
cently appointed by Governor Joseph 
B. Ely as new trustee of the Massa- 
chusetts State College. Mr. Bartlett 
is a well-known lawyer in and around 
Boston and has recently risen to 
prominence as director of a govern- 
ment project in Massachusetts. 

Mr. Bartlett succeeds the late 
CJeorge H. Ellis, whose death on May 
25 left a vacancy on the board. It was 
largely through the efforts of Dr. Ellis 
that the college obtained federal funds 
for the new buildings and the campus

Mr. William B. Baker of Newton 
addressed the Convocation this morn- 
ing on "The Massachusetts State 
I>egislature." Mr. Baker, a member 
of the Massachusetts Legislature, was 
well equipped to explain the intricate 
details of lawmaking by the state 
legislative body. 

Reviewing the history of the legis- 
lature, Mr. Baker pointed out that 
our state lawmaking body has been in 
existence for over three hundred years. 
and derived its first powers from a 
charter granted by the King of 

In conclusion Baker stated that in 
a democracy legislation reflects the 
development of our civilization and in 
the long run the opinion and aspira- 
tions of the people. He said that 
there is an unmistakable tendency to 
broaden the field of governmental 
activity and this in turn is enlarging 
the scope of legislation. "More and 
more the people, whether we like it or 
not, are looking to the government for 
the remedy for their social and eco 
nomic ills. All this is placing on the 
legislator the task of dealing with 
larger issues. I.«gislators have never 
needed courage and wi.sdom more than 
they do today." 



At a meeting held last Thursday, of 
student correspondents for outside 
papers, plans for the formation of a 
Press Club were drawn up and officers 
were elected. The officers are Louis 
A. Breault, Jr. '37, president and 
Charles E. Eshbach '37, secretary. 

The purpose of the organization is 
to bring together correspondents re- 
porting State College news to various 
papers throughout the State in order 
to facilitate the dissemination of the 
college news and to further the prac- 
tical and theoretical journalistic en- 
deavors of the correspondents. 

Members and the newspapers they 
represent are as follows: Louis A. 
Breault, Jr., the Worcester Telegram 
and Gazette and the Greenfield Recorder- 
Gazette; Charles E. Eshbach, the 
Springfield Union; William Chilson, 
the Springfield Republican; Bernard 
J. Doyle, the Springfield News; John

In an attempt to bring before the 
student body of Massachusetts State 
College a representative collection of 
the works of the old mastere, the 
American Federation of Arts is spon- 
soring the exhibition of prints and 
collotypes which ia now hung in the 
Memorial Building. This collection 
includes many of the best known paint- 
ings of such famous painters as 
Raphael, Da Vinci, and Botticelli. 

Stating itself to be "a national 
organization for the cultivation of the 
arts," the American Federation of Arts 
has as its purpose the sale of prints of 
recognized paintings in order that 
more people may become acquainted 
with them. All of the pictures now 
on exhibition are for sale. Most of 
these prints are from the firm of 
Hale, Cushman and Flint, Boston, 
while the collotypes are by the U. S. 
Printing and Lithograph Co., New 
York. The pictures in the Memorial 
Building have been reproduced from 
the originals by these firms.

Mr. Roving Reporter: How many 
students have ever been in the 
Memorial Room at Memorial Hall. 

Men have conquered nations . . . 

Pictures are raising havoc in one 
student's mind. The instructor asked 
him why he had prepared the assign- 
ment so poorly. 

"I'd read a couple of lines in the 
book," he explained earnestly, "and 
then the illustrations would distract 
me, and I'd have to begin all over 

In a previous issue of the Collegian, 
under a certain column, an article 
stated that Stockbridge was going in 
for deception by using a forward pass 

May I take this opportunity to 

correct you. The play you saw and 

thought to be a forward pass play was 

supposed to be a punt. The kicker 

developed a cramp just as he was 

about to kick — the next best thing 

to do — throw it — he did and so the 

forward pass.

<ientl«>manly Conduct 

Courtesy is the mark of a gentleman. A courteous man or woman ia al- 
ways an object of admiration in a group of people. The individual who con- 
ducts himself in a polite, restrained, and distinguished manner, stands apart 
from the typical college student. Unfortunately, the "rah-rah" •'oirit which 
receives so much emphasis in undergraduate life, does not lead to the de- 
velopment of a courteous, well-bred individual. Rather, it is the "thing" 
among students at our college, as at most American educational institutions, 
to conduct themselves in a boisterous, impolite manner, to show disrespect 
towards elders. At our college, we feel that altogether too many students 
exhibit the characteristics of crudeness and discourtesy in their association 
with their fellow students and with the professors. We do not find fault with 
the individual student, he cannot be blamed by the general atmosphere of 
impoliteness, which prevails on every American college campus today. But we 
do feel that the student group as a whole can improve its standard of courtesy 
and politeness. 

IMsri^pect in Convocation 

In the past the indifferent, disrespectful attitude of the student group 
towards a Convocation speaker has been rather painful. These speakers are 
the guests of the College, and the least a student can do is to show them the 

respect worthy of a guest. ... 

We do not wish to set up definite rules of etiquette for our student body, 
but perhaps, during a Convocation address, the student group should give ^j^^ ^^ 
the speaker courteous, polite attention, and discontinue the reading of books, ^^^.^^^ ^j,, 
etc the general undertone of conversation, and the apparent, absolute dis- ^^^ ^^ ^^ 
regard for the content of the address. If any one action of the student group 
is disgusting it is the mad rush of the students towards the exits at the close 
of Convocation. No student at this college is so busy that he cannot remain 
in his seat while the guest speaker and the faculty members leave the plat- 
form. Also, in other colleges, seniors command the respect of the under- 
classmen. Why not cooperate with the Student Senate and remain until the 
seniors have left the auditorium? And then quietly leave, instead of as a mad 
pack of hungry wolves? 

Courtesy to Faculty MemWrj* 

Most students have been taught to respect their elders: yet, apparently | 
quite a number have forgotten all their parental training, if the disrespectful 
conduct of manv of the students toward faculty members is any proof. We 
abhor the situation where an elderly faculty member must step off the side- 
walk to let a group of boisterous students pass, or where the faculty member 
has to fight his way through a packed hallway to his classroom. Also the 
unbelievable rudeness with which chaperons are treated at our fraternity 
dances is very disturbing. As faculty members are our elders, both in age 
and in 'experience, why not treat them with respect and courtesy which their 
position warrants. 

Re*<l>«'<-t Tom jir«l« Co-eds 

Most male students treat co-eds at this college with discourtesy and im- 
politeness, often beyond the grounds of common decency. We may be old- 
fashioned but we believe that the men of the student group should display 
more respect towards the women students, in conversation, in class rooms, 
and at collide dances. Or is it the sign of proper collegiate training to be rude 
and impolite to a woman student? 

More Court«'«*y 

Innumerable visitors to our College have commented upon the absolute 
crudeness and vulgarity of certain members of our student group. We believe 
that the .student body can act with courteousness ard politeness in its relation 
with the faculty and their fellow students. If four years of college training 
has any eflFect at all upon the individual, we believe it should develop in him 
the traits of a gentleman, courteousness and politeness.

Miiirjiy and Proetor Take Fourth 
Mild Seventh Plaeeti 


Heltering past State records, the 
Statesmen finished in sixth place last 
Monday, in the New England Inter- 
colUgiates on the F>anklin Park 
course. The State representatives 
tomi'iled a team score of 136 points, 
v»itl) liob Murray finishing in fourth 
plat, to carry off the individual 

The best a Statesman has ever be- 
fore placed was a ninth by Caird in 
1932. This year, two Derbymen were 
able to get into the first ten, Murray 
fourth and Proctor seventh. 

Murray ran a beautiful race and 
wa.x always close to the lead. With 
only a quarter mile of the course to 
be run he was in second position, but 
was passed by a Rhode Island State 
man, and Hunnewell of Maine. 

Proctor more than fulfilled expec- 
tations when he was barely nosed out 
for sixth place by one of Maine's 
HIack twins, and ended in seventh. 
I'he State harrier pressed the two 
brothers so closely that he kept them 
from cr()s.sing the line with their cus- 

I Kimary hand-in-hand finish. 

.Stepat, who finished 41st, was badly 

I hindered by an injured knee. The 
other Statesmen, Gillette, Bishop, 

I .Sampson, and Bryant, finished 36th, 

148, 49th, and 77th, respectively.

('ontiiiuing the Hinashing brand of 
football exhibited in the Amherst 
game, the Maroon and White grid- 
sters turned back the attack of a 
fighting Northea.stern team and turni-d 
the contest into a A7 i„ () rout In-fore 
the final whistle was sounded. K(H.nig 
and Stewart bore the brunt of the 
Statesmen's attack for the Hrst part 
of the game and Kreddy Murphy ran 
wild in the final canto, counting up 
three touchdowns before the contest 
was over. 

The Huskie combine came to Am- 
herst with a record of five wins and 
one tie but they met more than their 
match in the high jiower Maroon and 
White machine. Pl«y throughout 
most of the game remained d«.ep in 
Northeastern territory and the one 
dangerous Huskie willy was easily 
halted by the Tauhenien before the 
goal line was threatened. 

Northeastern started out with their 
full repetoire of plays but from the 
very start it was apparent that the 
Maroon and White outfit packed too 
much punch for the Boston team. 
Near the end of the pt>rii>d Shulkin 
fell on a loose ball on the 25-yard line. 
Jack K<R«nig brought the hall to the

not as popular an institution as is the 
library at the state college. The 
college library has over ninety-eight 
thousand bound books, an equal 
number of classified bulletins and 
scientific abstracts, and about five 
hundred current magazines and jour- 
nals. The government is dealing with 
a difTerent type of inmate, but it has 
provided thirty-five hundred bound 
books, and nearly all of the popular 
magazines. Of the six hundred pa- 
tients, one-sixth are real readers, and 
visit the library daily. College stud- 
ents devote most of their time to the 
arts and sciences, whereas but few of 
the veterans have been trained in 
these fields, works of adventure and 
romance are the most popular. 

Kct-reutiuniil Opportunities 
From the standpoint of relaxation 
and recreation, a college, the Massa- 
chusetts State College, at least, has 
no comparison. The college student 
has an opportunity to attend a few 
entertainments, and a handful of 
athletic events, has two tennis courts, 
a swimming pool, four bowling alleys, 
and two pool tables to occupy him in 
odd moments. The veteran, with 
eight hours of odd moments daily, 
boasts of a golf course, tennis courts, a 
swimming pool, and bigger and better 
pool tables and bowling alleys than 
the college student has. Ten teams 
carry on organized bowling matches, 
and contests between Harvard and 
Yale, Princeton and Columbia, and 
Smith and the Nite Hawks are weekly 
events. Concerts by the Northampton 
and Holyoke Concert Orchestras are 
given from time to time, and a ten 

thousand dollar pipe organ furnishes 
music for all institutional events. Two 
moving pictures are shown weekly, and 
dances are held twice a month. All 
patients enjoy the radio broadcasts, 
for each room is connected by radio. 
A comparison of the curricula of the 
two institutions might tend to show 
that the college trys to stimulate the 
brain of the inmate to the utmost, and 
that the hospital functions to the end 
of rejuvenating over-stimulated brain 



position as editor of the literary de- 
partment. Other changes in the board 
membership, including the appoint- 
ment of an associate editor in charge 
of composition, are pending. 

One of the features of the 1935 
yearbook will be a new and distinctive 
grouping of individual pictures, while 
another innovation will be the use of 
informal grouping in pictures of cam- 
pus organizations. 

The art department, headed by 
Dean N. Click '36, will introduce a 
new feature to the book in the use of 
several pages of distinctive pen-sketch 
cuts of campus scenes and figures. 

The omi.s8ion of personal articles, as 
in last year's Index, and the inclusion 
of several new special feature articles, 
will feature the work of the literary 

Editor Whaley plans to make the 
introduction to the book an attractive 
and distinctive feature, and has an- 
nounced that some changes in the 
divisions into which the book has 
been sub-divided in the past are con- 

Members of the staff of the 1935 

Index are as follows: editor-in-chief, 
W. Gordon Whaley; associate editor, 
Uonta G. Horrigan; secretary, Anna 
A. Flynn; business manager, Howard

ing the ball on the 20-yard marker, 
opened up an attack that carried the 
ball sixty yards before they were held 
for downs. A Northeastern forward 
pass was intercepted by Peterson who 
raced the thirty yards for a touchdown. 
The half ended with State leading 12-0. 

Toward the end of the third period 
State started an advance that resulted 
in another touchdown. Taking a kick 
at the 32-yard line, Koenig, Filip- 
kowski and Stewart advanced the ball 
to the eleven-yard line as the period 
ended. At this point Coach Taube 
replaced the first team. Murphy and 
Filipkowski combined to push the ball 
over the goal line for the third State 

After the next kickoff, Filipkowski 
pulled down a Huskie pass on the 
40-yard line and was only halted at 
the six-yard line. Murphy, with a 

wild burst of speed, scored on a play 
around the end. After the next kick- 
off. Northeastern was held for downs 
on the 28-yard line and it wasn't long 
before Murphy was off again for 
another score, around the end. A 
short time later Murphy pulled down 
a Huskie pass and reeled off thirty 
yards before he was downed. Peckham 
made it first down on the eight-yard 
line and Murphy raced through the 
line for another score. 

State showed the same first-class 
brand of ball playing that they did in 
the Amherst game and Koenig and 
Stewart were again outstanding. The 
line, with Schaffner, Lapham and 
Nietupski showing up excellently, was 
exceptional on defense. But it was the 
all-round team play of the Statesmen 
that made the game such a runaway. 

Mrs. Cora Hathaway, manager of 
the College Dining Hall for the 
past seven years, died in North- 
ampton last Saturday, at the age 
of sixty-seven. Mrs. Hathaway 
was born in Spencer, Mass. and 
was educated in the public schools 
of Spencer. She attended Columbia 
University and after a short career 
as a concert singer, she became 
interested in institutional work. 
Mrs. Hathaway was employed at 
the Grafton State Hospital before 
she came to Massachusetts State. 
Mrs. Hathaway won much respect 
and admiration from the students 
and officials of the college, both 
because of her capable leadership 
and her pleasant personality.

We have said that Chesterfields arc

These things are done to make 
what people want— a cigarette that's

on November 18, told of his experi-

poems. When he first began to be 
interested in poetry and the writing 
of poetry, David Morton was apolo-

was not a man's concern. He used to 
think as the old maxim 'A poet

the old mains, the transition was 

The generating equipment is cap- 
able of furnishing 1500 cubic feet per

Peruvian Government Sends 

Representative To Study Here 

f^r Hogo Magill, official dairy rep- 
rf^stntative of the Peruvian govern- 
■"tnt, has been visiting the college 
'his past week making a survey of the 
''airy situation here with views to 
applying such knowledge as he may 
Ssin to the dairy improvement pro- 
«f'*m being carried on at the present 
time in F*eru. 

According to Dr. Magill, even 
'hough Peru is ahead of the other 

I ■^'"J'h American countries as far as 
^'fy sanitation is concerned, the 
*«nitarv conditions of milk supply can 
* gnatly improved by modelling

P^n^pii-n of milk in Peru is only a

and "'■''''''°"*' "f °^ilJ^ production,

sume this duty." 

J hut 

There are great opportunities in 
Peru for men from the United States 
to study and improve the .sanitary 
conditions of cattle. Because of the 
warm climate like Texas 
fever, foot and mouth di.seases and 
anthrax are very prevalent. Poi.son- 
ous smoke from mines in certain 
.sections of the country is aLso re- 
sponsible for cattle Flutter is 
made only in the highland.s where 
milk is cheap and in the larger cities 
people have to resort to canned milk. 
In Lima, for instance, 10,000 cans of 
milk prepared in the United States 
are consumed each day, and even this 
condition is due to become worse, for 
Chilean, favored by ex- 
change rates, is preparing to flood the 
F'eruvian market with a cheaper, and 
decidedly inferior grade of milk. 

These are the main reasons why the 
Peruvian government has commis- 
.sioned Dr. Magill, who, incidentally, 
owns a large milk plant him.self, to 
come to the United States to gather 
information on the best methods f)f 
.sanitation and on ordinances of milk 
handling. Peru has come to realize 
the value of milk to human health and 
intends to push through a program 
which will safeguard the health of her

funds to aid college students in his 
refusal of federal assistance, President 
Dennett of Williams ('ollege asserted 
that it was impossible for the govern- 
ment to decide whether a specific 
student deserved aid or not and that 
a reduction in college enrolment is 
desirable. $7260 monthly is available 
in Massachusetts under this plan, 
with M.S.C. receiving $22;}5 for 149 
students. Mt. Holyoke, Amherst, 
A. I.e., International Y.M.C.A., and 
two state teacher's colleges are given 
the remainder. 

Dr. Dennett's refusal to accept this 
FF^RA aid for students at Williams 
was upheld by editorials app(>aring in 
the Springfield Union and the New 
York Herald-Tribune that commended 
his declining "indiscriminate federal 
aid for needy students." His Htand 
was challenged by President McClown 
of A. I.e., who a.ssc>rted that while 
such criticism was justified at Williams 
"a rich man's college," it should not 
apply to other schools "where many 
students are dependent upon such aid." 
Amherst College will accept ap- 
proximately half the amount since it 
is in a position to take care of over 
two hundred needy students in its 
present financial situation. I.rfite last 
week Amherst received a new endow- 
ment of $1,100,000. 

At Mass. State, 185 students are 
regularly on the p]RA fund at present, 
fifty on a special emergency fund, and 
from fifteen to twenty on special jobs 
occasionally. The number varies as 
there is a lump sum of money a 
month, but every cent available is

Faculty Considers 
Curriculum Changes 

Discussion of the recommendations 
recently made by the Faculty Com- 
mittee on the Curriculum is being 
carried on at weekly meetings of the 
entire faculty to consider the recom- 
mendations and determine a definite 
position for the group. 

It is planned to formulate within a 
few weeks definite resolutions and 
recommendations for the future guid- 
ance of the college. In all cases where 
a definite college policy is involved, 
the faculty will submit their resolu- 
tions through the President's Cabinet 
to the Trustees for their consideration 
and adoption. 

At the first meeting held last 
Thursday, the discussion of the ob- 
jectives of the college was led by 
Prof. Harry N. Click and Prof. 
Victor A. Rice, while Prof. F. P. Rand 
dealt with the recommendations re- 
garding organization of major depart- 
ments. Prof. Robert P. Holdsworth's

On November 23d. Nino Martini, 
leading tenor of the Metropt.litan 
Opt-ra Company, will give the first of 
the four concerts sponsored this year 
by the Community Concert Assmi- 
ation of Amherst. This concert is the 
only one of the series to lie given in 
Stockbridge Hall, all the others being 
scheduled for College Hall. Famous 
as a radio star, Nino Martini brings 
to his audience a voice so full of 
iH'auty and magic that it has won for 
him prt)bahly more admirers than 
that of any other tenor. 

Hc)rn and bred in Verona, Italy, 
Nino Martini led the life of an ordi- 
nary school-boy until one day the 
ch»)irmaster of .San Fermo's Church 
found in testing the voice of the 
ten-year old Nino that il was sur- 
prisingly beautiful. Soon he was sing- 
ing as soloist on great feast days. 
I.jiter, (jiovanni Zenatello and his 
wife. Maria (Jay. both distinguished 
opera singers who had foundetl a 
school for singing at Vernoa, became 
interested in the boy and took him 
into their home for study, a relation- 
ship which continued unbroken. 

In a home ideal for its musical 
atmosphere, and in a.ssociatitm with 
the students following a strict study 
schedule, Nino ab.sorbt>d mucrh that 
was vital to his future. Zenatello

Mr. CJrover Clark, former professor 
in the National University in Peking, 
and for three years special lecturer at 
Columbia University, sp<>aking in Con- 
vocation at Mas.sachusetts .State ('ol- 
lege on Nov. 22, traced the transition 
of modern ('hina from a pa.ssive .suh- 
jtjct of western experimentation to an 
active force in world affairs. 

A descendant of a family which has 
been associat('d with the Far Fast for 
four generations, Mr. Clark was him- 
self born in .Japan. After being edu- 
cated in the United .Stat(!s, ht; n^turnt^d 
to the Orient where he gained fame 
as an educator and as editor of the i 
Peking Leader. I 

As a result of these years spent in ' 
the Far Fast, he has been sub.setjuently I<)cialed with the Carnegi(' Kndow- 
ment for International Peace, the ^ 
lastitute of Pacific Relations and 
many business and financial as 
advisor. For the last two years, Mr. 
Clark has conducte<l the Round Table ; 
on the Far Fast at the University of 
Virginia Institute of Public Affairs. 
He is also the author of two magazine 
articles of great interest. Economic 
Rivalries in China, and Thr dreat

Either way, son, you're sick . . . 

Ammonia fumes spread from an- 
other lab into a freshman lab last 
week, causing the class to cough, 
sputter, and express their indignation. 
One man seemed especially overcome, 
for he was huddled over a book with 
a stricken look. As the instructor 
came up to investigate, he looked up 
with a sad smile. 

"I don't mind the fumes," he said. 
"It's these problems that bother me!" 

Coinmotiun of CiiinpuH. Weep- 
ing and wailing and gnashing of 
teeth, with one or two instances of 
pulling of hair. Then there is the 
other faction — the happy-go-lucky 
(mostly lucky) minety per centers 
who nonchalantly pass it off with 
"It was a 'gut.* I didn't even crack 
a book — just read the lecture notes." 
Yes, Organic Chemistry reaps its first 
harvest and finds much of the seed 
has been sown on stony ground. 



Tomorrow the faculty will vote on the adoption of the Bachelor of 
Arts deeree. The Collc^iati, voicing the overwhelminR desire of the 
student body, ur^es the addition to the college of this degree. W hy is 
this move now highly desirable.-' 

Growth and the A.B. 
Undoubtedly this course will help the growth of the college. A 
new spirit is felt on the campus. Recent construction is but the sign 
of^ force working for a finer institution. At the heart of this Ingher 
morile has been President Baker. Since his appearance, the best de- 
velopment for the whole college has been nearest his heart. Unselfishly, 
and without care for personal recognition, he has put his every energy 
hto^ha single aim. With increased knowledge of him, the students 
have sensed all this. We are well onoi.r way to being a vital part of 
the state educational system, and an influence within and without the 
State One line of improvement is the conferring of this degree. No 
human institution remains static - an organization either goes up- 
ward or it goes down. Minor or personal considerations must not 
weigh in our minds when the future of the college is to be won. 

Opinion of the College 
All other parts of the college have approved of the A.B. degree. In 
Tune the Board of Directors of the Associate Alumni voted for it 
un mimouslv. The student body, through a special questionnaire of 
he Student Committee on Curriculum Study, approved the idea 
overwhelminglv. And both the Faculty and Student Committees on 
Curriculum Study recommended the A.B. degree in their reports. 

One of the purposes of this college is to serve the state. Not ob- 
viously, but most effectively, this object is aided in one way by send- 
ing out graduates who bv their higher knowledge and standards raise 
the eeneral tone of the middle class. This manner of service is the 
least plain to be seen, but is probably the largest and most valuable. 
More obvious and direct, however, is the service our graduates give 
who instruct in the schools in the state. Many teach non-scientif^c 
subiects — languages and social studies. How much more efificient 
and valuable would they be if they had the complete training for their 


Benefit to Graduates 

The most immediate and tangil^le value from the A.B degree 
would be in "placing" our graduates Several days ago I talked with 
one of last year's seniors — a dose friend of mine. He had majored 
in the Social "Sciences." and sought naturally, to teach a subject 
under that division of studies. He is capable and has a fine record. 
Vet, several high school principals told him they could not accept him 
for that subject with in his incongruous B.Sc. degree. The same wall 
stops graduates seeking scholarships and assistantships in any gradu- 
ate school of arts. Our actual science majors, also, tend to have a 
debased degree; for our B.Sc. does not necessarily imply a study of 
the pure sciences. Two degrees for this college - both. thus, meaning 
something specific — would help to "place" our graduates. 

No Major Change 
The A B degree would cause little change in our organization or 
curriculum We have already the departments to supply it completely. 
Obviously, we have nearly the equivalent of the Arts course now. 
There remains only to recognize it by naming it as such. The matter 
comes down to the'principle of honesty — shall we call a spade, a spade. 

True Democracy 

Finillv the recognition of this course is sanctioned by the principle 

of true democratic deduction — a complete higher training within 

reach of all those worthy of it. Let us turn to the past. The traditional 

\ B course has come as the fusion, through a long period of time, ot 

the best of the classical civilization with the best of the C hnstian. 

With the rise of science in the middle of the nineteenth century. Huxley 

headed a swing in education toward the scientific and the practical. 

At this time the Land Crant Colleges were founded to make higher 

education available to the industrial classes. Naturally, they followed 

the emphasis of the times — which was (m science. In this century, 

however, the Land Crant Colleges have seen that l)oth courses have 

their value, according to the need and the aptittide of the student. 

Thus, all the western state colleges now give both degrees. 

Vet nowhere in this state is it financially possible for a person, the 
means of our average Mass. State student, to get the A.B degree 
The usual total expense for a year in residence at this co lege will 
but pay one year's tuition at any accredited institution in Massachu- 
setts giving ihe A.B. degree. The debate is not «ner the scientific 
versus the liberal arts discipline - both have proved their value The 
question is whether the opportunity for either type will be open to all 
capable minds. 

Sui^iir iind Kpit-e and . . . 

Clothes, evidently, still make the 
ladies at M.S.C. A lad wearing a 
sweater and pair of slacks walked into 
the library and looked around. Seeing 
an acquaintance over in a corner, he 
put on his best smile and approached 
her. In a cold, clear voice she greeted

Out of the storm and tumult of 
voices at the game, there piped up a

"Is there a doctor here? Is there a

At this point a figure stood up.

Once upon a time it was a common 
belief that apples were the things most 
likely to be found in an apple tree. 
Of course, there might be a farmer 
with a shotgun but not often — at 
least we generally got apples on Prexy's 
Hill — I beg your pardon! However, 
with the advent of the Tarzan movies, 
anything is liable to happen. Next to 
Phi Zeta is an orchard — no apples, 
no farmers, no shotguns. Well, what? 
How should I know? 

Well, the Chinee-man suggests that 
the more unfortunates at least can 
rationalize the situation to please 
themselves. Perhaps they can find 
solace in the lines of famous men. It 
is easy to cite examples of great men 
who have said comforting things - 
take, for example. General Wolfe 
Montcalm (sometimes called General 
Montcalm and sometimes called 
General Wolfe). In a letter to his 
adjutant he wrote: "I sometimes 
wonder what it is all about par- 
ticularly this hurry-scurry for Fame. 
And how are you, my dear adjutant? 
And that bad shoulder? Look out for 
that. And look out for a girl named 
Elsie who may drop in on you and 
say she knows me. She doesn't know 
me at all; in fact, who of us can say 
he really knows anything? I often 
wonder whether I know myself!" 

There is a great deal more to the 
letter, but enough is quoted to show 
that the famous general saw through 
the phantom which men call Success. 
He won Quebec but, after all, what 
was Quebec? He had to pay eight to 
ten and even at that he had the long 
hill to climb. His knowledge of what 
life really means came too late for 
him just as it comes too late for most 

of us. 

Or take the pitiful case of the un- 
fortunate junior who slaved and 
boned for the dreaded ordeal, came 
away with a 92 — but lost his Love. 
You may read the sad tale as the 
Chinee-man got it, and weep and 
repent at your leisure.

To the editor: 

I wish to congratulate you and to 
join with you in the spirit of the 
editorial which was published in the 
Collegian on November 15. 

We have heard much of the awaken- 
ing of the student body to the finer 
graces of living, but as yet, I am forced 
to confess, I have failed to recognize 
these "finer graces" as portrayed or 
interpreted by our student body. 

It has been said of an American, 
that he takes pride in appearing un- 
cultured, and that college and univer- 
sity men strive to make themselves 
inconspicuous by discarding the pose 
of a gentleman and a scholar, and 
assuming that of the man in the 
street. If this be true of the college 
man, then the college has failed to 
perform its function, and might l)e 
well discontinued, rather than he a 
breeding place of crudeness of thought 
and action. However, I believe that 
the student at the Massachusetts 
State College has the will to rise 
above the uncouth and uncultured, 
and congratulate you, Mr. Editor, 
for reminding him of the present stale 
of affairs.

Informal Concerts 

The series of informal concerts 
sponsored by the music committee 
last winter proved so successful that 
the series is being extended this 
season. The purpose of this series is 
to make available to interested stud- 
ents fine music presented informally. 
It also enables talented students, 
faculty members and friends of the 
college to share their abilities with 
music lovers on the campus. 

The first concert of the season will 
be at 4.30 p.m., next Tuesday. Nov. 
27, in Memorial Hall. All students 
are cordially invited to attend. There 
will be a concert each Tuesday at 
that hour through the winter. At 
least half of the programs will be 
presented by students this year. 
Each concert will be less than an

Wesleyan Booters Crushed 2-0 

In Final Game Of Briegsmen 

Tallying both scores, Captain Jim 
({lutkburn led his teammates last 
Kridiiv to their fourth straight win 
over the previously successful Wes- 
leyan booters. To climax the season, 
the victory was decisive and clean-cut, 
for playing aggressive ball continu- 
gltv, ttie Statesmen kept the action in 
foreign territory throughout the major 
part of the match. 

Pinning a defeat on the McCurdy- 
Qien had the added advantage of 
placing the Maroon team on an even 
par with them for third place in the 
Sew Kngland Intercollegiate League. 
liHl by five seniors determined from 
the start to win their last game, the 
State contingent attacked the Wes- 
leyan defense with no delay. With the 
passing and teamwork functioning 
smoothly, the ball rarely traveled to 
the Maroon goal. With playing con- 
ditions the best this year, with neither 
wind nor sun to give an advantage 
and no mud to hamper operations, the 
pill WHS kept rolling by the fast driving 

I of both teams. 

Kept scoreless during the first 

I period, the Statesmen rang up the 

Unit score during the second when. 
after continually hammering at Beh- 
remi, Blackburn got his first oppor- 
tunity during a melee in front of the 

I Wesleyan net. 

(!unditions remained unchanged dur- 

I ing the third scission and well into the 
fuurth. Kennedy, playing outside 
right, was called upon for a corner 
kick and as he placed it in front of the 
Kual mouth, Blackburn received it and 

I headed it in. 

Captain Talbot and Hutchinson, 
I outside right and halfback, formed a 

lumbination that several times ad- 
Lunced the ball, and Hutchinson and 

barton, the opposite pair performed 
Isiinilarly. Behrens was responsible 

for many difficult saves. 

Individual stars fur State were in- 
Idistinguishable. Captain Jimmie as 
libual featured in all departments and 
I m sizing up the play. Clark with his 
Iheading and driving and Davidson 
I with his driving were active oifensi ve- 
il) Red Wood as roving fullback let 
I few opponents into the danger area 
land George proved capable of hand- 
lling these. The forward line's passing 
iMpeeially showed up and equalled the 
linvader's reputation of clearing to the 
pings and halfback line. The lineup:

Amherst's undefeated soccer team 
is now leading in the New Rnglahd 
Intercollegiate Soccer League, an as- 
sociation functioning for the first time 
this year. Harvard, previously tied 
for first place and also undefeated, 
did not play a league game when 
Amherst won the last two to forge 
ahead, and then won again from Tufts 
to clinch the title. There is some 
possibility of a shift in third place as 
both Springfield and Brown have 
games to play. The standings:

Freshman And Jayvee 

Harriers Successful 

Closing a successful season, the 
M.S.C. freshman cross country team 
won the triangular meet with Stock- 
bridge and the Junior Varsity last 
Friday. Twenty-five freshmen turned 
out this year for cross country under 
the leadership of varsity captain 
Stepat. Although there were no ex- 
ceptional men, the cubs won from the 
Amherst freshmen and Jayvee teams, 
and Stockbridge in informal meets. 

Despite their one defeat last week, 
the Junior Varsity functioned decided- 
ly well and duplicated the freshmen's 
feat against Amherst teams. Samson, 
Whittemore, J. Freedman, Dihlman. 
Bolton, and Bryant, all of '37, and 
Roger Allen '36, are promising candi- 
dates for the varsity team. Of the 
freshman team, D. and G. Beaumont, 
Villaume, NcJame, Wilcox, and Has- 
kins were prominent. The result of 
the season follows: 

As a result of Tuesday night's semi- 
final games, Alpha Kpsilon Pi will 
meet Theta C'hi in the touch football 
final to be played Thursday evening. 
Kappa Sigma was defeated 44-33 by 
A.K.P. and Kappa Kp 37-32 by Theta 
Chi in the semi-finafs. 

Phi Lambda Tau defeated Non- 
Fraternity in all three matches to 
move into the final round of ping 
pong on Thursday in the Memorial 
Building. I..timbda (!hi Alpha also 
reached the finals by defeating .Sigma 
Phi Kpsilon in the doubles and one 
single niatches by close scores.

Upsetting all precedent, the fresh- 
man soccer team walked away, yes- 
terday, with a 3-0 victory over their 
upperclass rivals, the sophomores. 
Although the class of '37 was favored 
to win, the frosh succeeded in making 
three goals. 

Early in the first period, after close 
playing by both teams, Tom Lyman 
of '38 managed to get the ball past 
the sophomore goaltender to score the 
first goal. Later in the game he also 
scored the other two points: one in 
the second period, the other late in 
the fourth. 

Although the sophomores had a 
strong team and played a hard game, 
they were unable to put the ball into 
the freshman goal. Several times the 
upperclassmen had opportunities to 
score, but were successfully turned 
back. This is the first time, since the 
freshman-sophomore games were in- 
stituted in 1930, that the freshman 
have triumphed. Lyman, 1937 team 

Swimming Team 

Elects Tirrell Capt. 

NatalitrM I'raiii fur FirHt VarNity 

'" P'" j !< last game for Mass. State , captain, was the freshman coach 

Wilbur Tirrell, star of last year's 
unofficial swimming team, was unani- 
mously elected captain of the swim- 
ming team that will first represent the 
Massachusetts State College as a 
varsity group. Tirrell, known as 
"Webb" to his team mates, is out- 
standing as a backstroker and free- 

Tirrell, Welcker, and Cutter will 
form the nucleus of this year's swim- 
ming team. Tirrell will probably swim 
in the 100-yard freestyle, and 150- 
yard backstroke, and the relay. 
Welcker is outstanding as a middle 
distance man. Last year, being a 
transfer, he was ineligible for compe- 
tition, but this season should see him 
garnering points for the Rogersmen 
in the 220 and 440 freestyle events. 
Both these men are seniors. Cutter, 
a sophomore, is the best dash man on 
the team, and will swim in the 50 and 
100-yard dashes. 

Harry Pratt will again be entered 
in the 1.50-yard breast stroke, as will 
Jim Hodder, a sophomore, who has 
turned in some excellent time in the 
event. Clau-k, a veteran, will swim in 
the backstroke, and Al Hovey, an- 
other experienced natator, will do the 
diving for the Maroon and White 

Coach Rogers has no illusions of 
turning out a championship group in 
this first season of swimming, but the 
team which represents the Statesmen 
should turn in many worthy per- 
I fonnances this year. 

Rensselaer Bows 

Before Maroon Attack 

With almost every man on the squad 
seeing service, the Maroon and White 
gridiron forces had no difficulty sink- 
ing a Rensselaer team to the tune of 
32-0 on Alumni Field last Saturday. 
A passing rally in the closing minutes 
of the game by Rensselaer left the hall 
on the State one-inch line as the 
whistle blew. The Statesmen, with 
their major game of the year but one 
week away, went right to the task and 
before many minutes of the first 
period hud elapsed, Koenig went over 
for a score. The second score came in 
the next session when Stewart climaxed 
a 70-yard march with a beautiful pass 
which Bill Davis took on the 30-yard 
stripe and carried across the goal 
without being touched. Koenig made 
good the try for point and the States- 
men assumed a 13 to lead. 

The Engineers from Troy were 
powerless before the State attack and 
two more scores resulted in the third 
period. Shortly after the opening of 
the canto the Statesmen took a 
Rennselaer kick at the middle of the 
field and unleashed a drive that 
carried them to the 12-yard line 
before they lost the ball on downs. 
Rensselaer kicked but Vic Guzowski 
blocked the kick and Freddy Ixshr fell 
on the loose ball on the 16-yard stripe. 
Peckham gained a couple yards and 
then heaved a nice aerial over the 
line to Moran. Koenig's try for the 
extra point was blocked. 

I.4ite in the same period, the States- 
men again gained possession of the 
ball at midfield and with I'eckham 
and Consolatti carrying the pigskin, 
started an advance that netted four 
first downs and another score. Con- 
solatti made the touchdown and 
Peckham's attempt to place-kick the 
extra point was unsuccessful. Not to 
be stopi)ed with this, the Statesmen 
opened the final quarter with another 
count. With a substitute lineup, the 
Taubemen took a liensselaer kick on 
the Engineers' 30-yard line. Monroe 
made a couple of yards through the 
line and Consolatti picked up four 
more. The same two then produced a 
first down and Avery scored around 
right end. Avery's attempt for the 
extra point was unsuccessful. The 
rest of the game saw Rensselaer 
filling the air with passes in a desperate 
effort to score, while Coach Taulie 
was sending substitute after substi- 
tute into the game. Three passes and 
a rush brought the ball to the Maroon 
and White one-inch mark, but the 
game ended before the men of Troy 
could run off another play. 

Rennselaer opened the contest, kick- 
ing off to Koenig on the 8-yard line. 
Jack ran the ball back twenty yards 
before he was pulled down. Filip- 
kowski picked up a couple of yards 
but Koenig was stopped for a two 
yard loss. Stewart kicked, and the 
Engineers, unable to advance, were 
forced to kick again, the ball going 
out of bounds at the middle of the 
field. Koenig and Filipkowski clocked 
up a first down. Stewart kicked to 
the two-yard stripe and Kagan re- 
turned the kick for Rensselaer but 
the ball carried only twenty yards. 
Supported by some excellent blocking, 
Filipkowski made a first down and, 
in two plays, Koenig smashed through 
for six. points. 

State kicked off and .Sawyer re- 
turned the ball 55 yards before he was 
stopped by Sturtevant. A yard was 
made on the next play and Rensselaer 
kicked but the ball went only ten 
yards. Three plays, with Filipkowski 
carrying the ball, netted twenty yards 
but on the last one Phil fumbled and 
the Engineers took possession of the 
ball on the State 40-yard marker. A 
gain by Gavetti and .Sawyer and two 
offside penalties and the Engineers 
were on the 20-yard line. .Sawyer 
raced through for sixteen yards before 
Sturtevant pulled him down. Then 
Rensselaer shifted their tactics and 
unsuccessfully took to the air. The 
Taubemen kicked out of danger im- 
mediately and the EngintM^rs had the 
ball as the period ended. 


Having piled up a record i>f wven 
wins, no losses, and no ties, a powerful 
Tufts (^olU'gf <>|(>ven will go into 
.Saturday's game with Stale, favoretl 
to continue its undefeated march 
towards the small c<»ll»'g,. champion- 
ship of New England. Tufts is one i>f 
the few colleges in the East which is 
still able to boast of a clean slate. 

The "Little Hotw Bowl" eleven, 
from Medford. has proved itself to l>e 
the leading small college team in New 
England. For five games straixht, 
the battling Jumhtjs kept their Koal 
line uncrossed hy any opp«)nent. Two 
weeks ago. in a game againHt Middle- 
bury, the Hillside team whh scored 
upon for the first time this si'ason. 
when the Vermont team kicked a field 
goal, their only score of the name. 
I.a»st Saturday, playing on Whittier 
field, in Brunswick, Maine, the Tufta 
team barely eked out a 7-fi win over 
a surprisingly strong Bowdoin eleven. 

Tufts lists among its victims some 
very strong fcM^hall teams, ('olby. 
Williams, Boston University. Conn. 
State, Middlehury, New Ihinipshire. 
and Itowdoin are the teams which 
wt^re humblt'd at the hands of the 
Brown and Blue. 

The Tufts forward wall has U'en a 
bulwark of strength all season. The 
wings are l>eing taken care of by 
Grinnell and Oliver, two men who 
have been playing at the poHts for 
three years now. Fox and Woodworth 
both big and fast, will In* at the tackle 
positions, while the center trio of 
Kyrios, Itendall, and Carlyn will 
complete the line. Captain FrtM^ilich 
at fullback, Keith and Kingston half- 
backs, and MacClean at quarter, will 
be the starting hackfield. The four 
backs have turned in stellar |M'rform- 
ances all year. 

Class Rivals In 
Grid Contest 

Next Tuesday aftern<Mtn, the annual 
Freshman and Sophomore football 
battle will take place at Alumni Field. 
Close scores of the past indicate that 
the class teams are always evenly 
matchiHl, and as neither team has as 
yet functioned as a unit, neither side 
is favored. 

The freshman won twice in the past 
five matches, last year and 19.10. 
Ixju Bush's first year, by the scores 
of 19-8 and 12-0. The last sophomore 
victory came, 6-0, in 1929, while the 
other games have rt'sulted in stroreless 

The freshman squad is compo.sed of 
players who have seen regular service 
in high and prep schools and have 
been under instruction in the physical 
education courses, while the majority 
of the sophomores will be members of 
the varsity who are not likely to 
receive their letters. 

Rensselaer punted to open the 
second session. Koenig made a first 
down and Filipkowski was off for 
another. But Rensselaer stiffened 
and Stewart's kick was returned to 
Rensselaer's 15-yard line. 

A short forward l>ehind the line 
and a run by Hoffman gained a first 
down. Sawyer picked up eight yards 
before being stopped by Flipkowski. 
By virtue of forwards and some nice 
running, the Engineers reeled off two 
more first downs and advanced to the 
State 35-yard marker. But here the 
Statesmen held and set the Engineers 
back ten yards in three plays and 
Becker punted to Stewart on the 
15-yard line. Johnny ran the ball 
back twenty yards before he was 
downed. Koenig and Filipkowski made 
the first down in two plays and Koenig 
made another when he skirted left end 
for 22 yards. Stewart picked up a 
yard and then shot a beautiful aerial 
to Bill Davis for a touchdown. Koenig

Interior Uftoriiliou I>f>*i|iiu'il for 

"Girls at Mass. State are going to 
get a break at last." That's how Mr. 
Ridden, clerk in charge of codes, and 
Mr. Kathgeb, Ibreman-electrician of 
the project, F)ut the fact that the 
Goodell Library, corner stone I 
was laid on NovemlM'r .i, is designed 
to appeal to women. 

Soft rugs, upholstered chairs, and 
floor lamps will provide a homelike 
atmosphere for the girls. This is in 
keeping with the modern trend which 
is to escape stiffness and formality. A 
similar informal style of decoration 
has been followed successfully in recent 
buildings at Dartmouth. 

Nature, t(M), is doing its bit to 
make the ladies look upon the new 
library with a kindly eye. Reading 
tables will extend along the entire west 
wall to take advantage of the line view 
of Mt. Tom and Mt. Sugarloaf. While! 
this scenery is the finest available on 
the campus, the builders feel that the 
faculty should view it with modified 
alarm. As Mr. Reddin said to Mr. 
Rathgeb's nod of agreement, "The 
lads can sit there all afternoon looking 
at the scenery and dreaming about 
their girls, and the librarians can't do 
anything about it." 

In a few years, the doodell Library, 
the Memorial Building, and the Physi- 
cal Kducation Building will become 
the center of campus activity, es- 
pecially with the possible addition of 
wings to these buildings. The grading 
in front of the library and the plat- 
form at the top of the steps, which 
will hold fifty people, make this a 
natural place fur future mass-meetings 
and the taking of group pictures. 

"By the way, the ventilator on top 
isn't going to l)e just part of the 
decorative motif," continued Mr. Red- 
din. The ventilating system Ls essen- 
tial for the proper care of the books. 
The smoking rooms also make it 

"All in all, it will be the best 
equipped and most up-to-date library 
in its class in the country. And,"

Speaking on the subject, "America's 
Impact Upon the Nations," Mr. 
Charles D. Hurrey will the 
student body of Massachusetts State 
('ollege at Convocation on Dec. 6th. 
Mr. Hurrey is the general secretary on 
Friendly Relations Among Foreign 
Students in North America. 

Because of the fact that he has 
known and is now in touch with 
thousands of foreign students in the 
United States, Mr. Hurrey has had a 
unique opportunity to find out what 
these students realy think about the 
t)ccident and its customs. This is the 
reverse of the usual situation in which 
western political, economic, and .social 
experts make trips abroad and report 
the conditions they find. Mr. Hurrey 
through his contacts with the^^ ob- 
I servers from other nations is able to 
report what they think of America. 

Students in India, Egypt, the Phili- 
ppines, China, Japj, have acclaimed 
him their friend. On one of his visits 
to Japan, he was hailed a« the "Father 
of Japanese Students in America." 
He understands their problems, their 
effect upon the relationship between 
their country and the United States, 
their life in our country and their life 
after their return to their native land.

Term "Spirituality'^ 

Addressing the second Sunday 
Chapel of the current year, Rev 
Henry Sloane Coffin, president of 
Uiuon Theological Seminary, brought 
forth "The Meaning of the Word! 

The speaker emphasized the hnl 
that spirituality, contrary to popular 
thought, has something to do with 
physical life, and the combined (jual. 
ities of tact, intelligence, insight, anal 
forgiveness, as well as the sitigy 
qualities of "big-heartedness" and 
appreciation of art, give a person the 
quaUty of spirituality.

spiration plus dedication yields spirit.

"When a person puts all he has into I 
the finest task, he finds a reenforct 
ment that enables him to build lK'tt«| 
than he knows." 

In order to bear out his contention 
he cited several examples of literary I 
achievement that seemed, even to the I 
authors themselves, to have bt*D| 
guided by some supernatural power.

of seven professors appointed by 
President Baker last December to 
examine the curriculum considered 
the question from several points of 
view in their October report. The 
object of education was considered 
from the viewpoint of character, 
productive work, health, and social 
and recreational training. 

Recommendations as to the cur- 
riculum discussed the possible union 
of agriculture and horticulture into 
one division while that of physical 
and biological science would divide 
into two because of shifting enroll- 
ment. The formation of a new 
division for the humanities would 
make pos.sible many desirable results, 
such as granting the A.B. degree.

A collection of landscape paintings ' mental assistants as well: 
by Mrs. Mary Shepard Klar is now 
on exhibition in the Memorial Build- 
ing. This collection of landscape 
paintings is very familiar to many 
because they are nearly all local 
landscapes, for it is the old mellow, 
local humanized. New England land- 
scape which has such strong appeal 
for Mrs. Klar. 

Among the paintings in the exhibit 
are many excellent paintings of old 
houses, barns, and mills as well as 
portrayals of such themes as Laurel 

Mrs. Klar is a resident of Spring- 
field, and she has a summer home in 
Conway, where much of her painting 
is done. In fact, one of her paintings 
on exhibition is that of her summer 
home in Conway. Her son, James 
Klar, who graduated from the college 
last year will perhaps be remembered 
by many of the upperdassmen. 

The artist's husband is also very 
much of an artist himself. He is, at 
present, the superintendent of art in 
the Springfield schools, and teaches 
art in the summer school of the State 
College of Pennsylvania. Mrs. Klar 
•ery often accompanies her husband 
to Pennsylvania and some of her 
landscapes on exhibition were painted 
there. The majority of her land.scapes, 
however, are characteristic of Frank- 
lin County and the Connecticut 
Valley. It will he noticed that 
the paintings are all land.scapes and 
no still life is portrayed. 

These paintings are for sale at 
quite modest prices. Anyone inter- 
ested may consult Professor Waugh.

Under the auHpice.s of the (Miristian 
Association and the Social Science 
('lub. on ()ct(»h<«r .'M, twenty four 
students atul faculty members had a 
first hand view of labor conditions in 
the industrial section of Holyoke. 
The trip was arranged through the 
Orace ('hurch of Holyoke, which is a 
non-denominational church serving the 
impoverished industrial workers there. 
Amherst, Smith, and Mt. Holyoke 
students have heen working at this 
church for many years as a wicial 
laboratory and the first event was a 
trip through a paper mill where every 
step in the process was explained and 
labor conditions were discu.s.s4'd from 
the manufacturers viewpoint. Then 
visits were made to homes of indstrial 
workers und(>r the direction t»f Rev. 
Edwin Robinson, pastor of the parish 
of (Irace Church. 

After supper, which was served at 
the church, the group participated in 
the Wednestlay night forum held regu- 
larly at (Irace Church at which the 
discussion centered alK>ut the prob- 
lems of churches working in the poorer 
areas of a city. 

Information comes from the Minne- 
sota Experiment Station of the naming 
of a new spring wheat for Dr. Thatcher, 
formerly dean of the University De- 
partment of Agriculture. Five years' 
milling and baking tests of the new 
wheat indicate that it is the equal to 
Marquis, the recognized standard for 
milling and baking quality. The new 
variety has replaced Martiuillo on the 
list of recommended varieties because 
of its superiority in disease resistance, 
yielding ability, and other desirable 
agronomic characteristics.

began the boy's vocal training when 
he was eighteen; three years later he i 
made his operatic debut with marked . 
success. I'rior to that he had won | 
considerable recognition as concert 
soloist with the orchestra at Verona. 

Much followed quickly in the life 
of Nino Martini. Bellini's / Purilani 
was revived for him at Milan, where 
he sang the tenor music in its original 
key, clear up to F above high C, a 
feat unknown for generations; sixteen 
times in succession he sang in that 
opera at Milan. Upon his brilliant 
successes in the European capitals 
there followed almost immediately his 
triumphs in America. The most out- 
standing of thest' receptions was his 
debut with the Philadelphia (Jpera 
Company. With his renditi<)n of the 
aria. La Donna e Mobile, he "stopped 
the show," and contrary to all the 
rules of that organization, was forced 
to give an encore. 

Success has rightly followed this 
frank, genial, and youthful artist; 
this untiring worker, this magnetic 
personality, has at his command an 
extensive and well-chosen repertoire. 
A New York reviewer said of him, 
"Mr. Martini has all in his favor be- 
fore he utters a note." With such 
qualities, successful in the past and 
indicative of an even more brilliant 
future, Nino Martini brings new 
talent and spontaneity to the prest^nt- 
day list of singing celebrities. 

For his recital tomorrow night Nino 
Martini will offer the following pro- 
gram of songs:

I kicked the extra point. 

Then began the swarm of State 
substitutions. Consolatti and Peck- 
ham replaced Stewart and Sturtevant 
and I'eckham kicked off. Becker ran 
the kick back ir> yards and on the 
next play dropped back to pass. 
Filipkowski snatched the pass out of 
the air and the Maroon and White 
had the ball. Several plays and an 
exchange of kicks ended the period. 
Score at the half, State 13, Rensselaer 

Shortly after the start of the second 
half, Stewart kicked out of bounds on 
the Rensselaer 11 -yard line. The 
Engineer attack failed and Roberts 
returned the kick. Then began an- 
other State march. Koenig, Peckham 
and Filipkowski made two first downs, 
bringing the ball to the P^ngineers' 

18-yard marker. State made three 
yards on thn;e plays and a on 
the last down failed. Guzowski 
blocked Roberts' punt and Lehr re- 
covered for State. A Peckham to 
Moran pass clicked for a touchdown 
but Koenig's try for the point was 

State kicked off and Ren.sselaer re- 
turned the kick and State was off on 
another offensive drive of five first 
downs. Peckham and Con.solatti made 
a first down while Avery and Conso- 
latti teamed up for another. Again 
l*eckham and Con.solatti licked off 
another, while Peckham, on two plays, 
made the fourth con.secutive first down. 
Consolatti reeled off five yards through 
tackle and on the next play was over 
the wide stripe for another score. 
Peckham's kick for the point was 
good and the period ended. State 26, 
Rensselaer 0. 

To start the final period the Engin- 
eers were held for no gain on their 
10-yard line, and Roberts' kick carried 
only sixteen yards. Monroe, Conso- 
latti and Avery teamed up for another 
score, Avery making the touchdown. 
Avery's try for the point was un- 
successful. Fisher kicked off for State 
and Rensselaer took the ball on the 
25-yard line. Then began a wild 
barrage of passes, with Powers doing 
most of the throwing. Coach Taul)e 
sent in substitutes in groups but the 
Engineers could gain but slowly. A 
pass to Powers was good but Avery 
of State intercepted the next one. 

Monroe and Whitaker made a yard 
apiece and Monroe kicked. Three 
passes were tried, only one being 
successful, and Kaufman punted. 
Whitaker raced around end for 16 
yards and Monroe added another 15 

but a State fumble gave Rensselaer 
the ball. A Kaufman to Powers pass 
was good for ten yards and the next 
one fell untouched. Then Kaufman 
heaved a long one that fell into the 
waiting hands of Echardt on the 
20-yard marker. Two more pa.sses 
went for naught but the third was 
successful for another first down. 
Kaufman then pas.sed to Ward and 
Ren.sselaer had the ball inches from 
the goal line. With a score almost 
inevitable for Rensselaer, the game 
ended. The lineup:

Fill"""'* I..yric Tenor of Metro- 

politHii Opera Company, (iiv*"** 

Kefital in Slofkbridi^e Hall 

Nino Martini, famous lyric tenor of 
the Metropolitan Opera Company, 
gave a recital last Friday evening in 
Bowker Auditorium before an en- 
thusiastic capacity audience. 

This recital, the first of the present 
season's Amherst Community Concert 
.series, had a quality of freshness, 
spontaneity, and vigor not always 
found, alas, in vocal performances. 
Mr. Martini was in excellent voice 
and his treatment of the music on his 
program showed the thoughtful and 
.sensitive musician more fully in com- 
mand of his instrument, more able to 
endow it with the inward concept of 
the song, than has hitherto always 
been apparent. Mr. Martini possesses 
a most eloquent vocal instrument. It 
is a voice capable not only of a great 
volume of sound, but of the finest 
shades in pianissimo as well. It is a 
voice of great range, touching with the high notes of decorative song 
and descending to the throbbing 
eloquence of "Vainement ma bien 
aimee." Mr. Martini's voice is so 
inherently brilliant in timbre that its 
forte is amply sufficient for Bowker 
Auditorium; when he delivered for- 
tissimi, a shade of tremolo crept in 
and the tone was less pleasant. This, 
however, was a minor matter. 

My the evidence of this recital Mr. 
Martini prefers profundity music — 
making to punch. He prefers the 
artfully-rounded phrase to the swell- 
ing period; the sensitively graduated 
line to the hard-driven contrast. By 
impact alone he would not conquer. 

What has been already stated con- 
cerning the manner of the program 
cannot be said of the matter. What

Japan is skating on very thin ice, 
faced with a terrible economic situa- 
tion, and involved in a foreign policy 
which she can not appreciate thorough- 
ly and from which she seems unable to 
extricate herself," declared Grover 
Clark, expert on Far Ka.stern Affairs, 
who addressed the students at Con- 
vocation on November 22. 

"In fifty years," said Mr. Clark, "I 
expect the Japanest> situation will no 
longer be of importance in the world 
In fifty years Japan will be no more 
important in the Far Kast than is 
Belgium in Europe today." 

World affairs during the past few 
years have convinced China that 
national stability is possible only 
through the establishment of a large 
army and navy. The complete failure 
of the League and the United States 
to do anything about the Manchurian 
situation has made China wary of 
putting faith in the ability of any 
world organization for peace. World 
respect is only obtained by the mili- 
tarist nations, modern China is he- 
ginning to believe. In 1926, when it 
was proposed to institute voluntary 
military training for students, stud- 
ents in the national university of 
Peking objected violently. This year. 
2500 of the 2700 students have volun- 
tarily enrolled for military training 
which is becoming universal in China

" : r ; y were good-natured about it. 

"e asked no .<*pecial privilidges and no 
*'Pecial tourses. All we asked was the

*«*rf r,]\ gentlemen and showed no 

I'r.liably some of the older alumni 
ho u,re so bitterly opposed to co- 

education still hold it against us that 
we stuck it out in spite of insults and 
so made it possible for the women of 

j Massachu.setts to get a good education 
at reasonable cost. I still don't care 

I what they think of me and would do 
it all over again." 

Miss Cushman comments on the 

I fact that at the time when she sought 
entrance into the college she was 
encouraged a great deal by President 
Goodell, who believed that a state- 
.supported college should be available 
to the girls as well as the boys of the 
state. She says that she found that the 

I men students took their presence as a 
joke, and were, for the most part, 
indifTerent, few of them Inking actually 
hostile. "Our best friend on campus," 

' she writes, "was Prexy Goodell." 

I It is an undeniable fact that, led by 
these two women, co-eds have forged 
ahead until now they one- 
third the student body and are on 
t-qual parity with the men, that is 
with the exception of certain well- 
known rules which govern women 
students in all colleges. There are no 
courses which are closed to women, 
and there are no courses .solely for 
women. They have their r)wn student 
government association and always 
hold their own wherever student 
jxilitics is concerned. 

Just how far women may progress 
at the college is. then, a .serious matter 
of concern for of our male stud- 
ent body who still in believing 
that women are a degree lower than 
men and should l»e governed rather 
than tolerated. So, if the trustees 
ever decide to the co-ed 
enrollment men, look out!

Dr. Cortlandt van Winkle, professor 
of English at Smith College, addresst>d 
the Newman Club in Bowker Audi- 
torium last Monday evening on the 
subject "Some Aims of the Liturgical 
Revival." Dr. Van Winkle stated 
that there are two reforms which are 
not being efT«'cted by the liturgical 
revival: first more acute awareness 
of liturgy and a commim worship 
made possible by translations in 
nii.s.sjil, etc., and secondly, the eleva- 
tion and merging of Catholic thought 
to the divine. 

Dr \'.in Winkle l»elieves the church 
revival is much stronger in European 
countries than in the United States. 
He outlined carefully the history of 
the Church since its begining especial- 
ly in regard to aims of God. Dr. Van 
Winkle stated the revival is very im- 
portant and in conclusion said: "By 
this revival we should see (>od not as 
a God of suffering l)ut as a God of 
glory, the man of redemption.

"Home for Thanksgiving." 




VYhv not abolish the annual practice of posting in public the names 
of upperclassmen failing courses at mid-semester." Since our freshman 
year we have experienced many d..ul.ts about the real value of Dean s 
Board and after a careful consideration, we conclude that he worth 
and of Dean's Board is negative and that it should be dis- 
continued. ^^^ Fear-Incentive for Study is Bad 

The onlv purpose which the administration can have for posting 
f-iihires in in.blic is to make this open display of inferior marks, serve 
a^ ^in entive to additi<.nal study. We sincerely feel that this method 
of inducing students to study is wrong fundamentally. Many students 
SUV onlv because thev have a strong fear that their names will be 
on Dean's Board. If the work ..f a college ,s to promote education 
?hr(.ugh fear, then the situation has become pitiable. The humanistic 
professors on our campus continually attempt to arouse the individ- 
lid student to a desire for pure study, for its own sake, so that the> 
wtll learn better -how to live." The Dean's Board makes students 
study through fear of embarrassment or hurt pride. 

Week Before Dean's Board 
What is the situation about two weeks bef.)re the appearance of 
Dean's' Board. Nearly all of the professors pile on quizzes and ex- 
aminations so that each student may have a mark for Dean s Saturday 
The student is harrassed and distracted by the seemingly avalanche of 
tests' His eye and mind are constantly focussed on the fear that it he 
fails 'an examination, his name will appear on Deans Board as a 
failure in that course. Thus the whole effect of the course is Ost when 
the student remarks, "1 am going to study for this exam because I 
do not want to be on Dean's Board." 

Dean's Board is Unjust 
Whv is the student afraid of having his name on Dean's Board .-^ 
First because of his pride; secondly, because of his dread of embarass- 
ment'- thirdlv, because of the inferior impression the failure probably 
cives'to his fellow students. The posting of many students names is 
often unjust. Often the student is posted failing a course who has been 
sick and has not been able to make up his work. \et the Dean s 
Board displavs the bare fact of a failure, without any qualifications 
or excuses the Dean's Board is also unjust to transfer students and 
often uives the unfair impression of new students. Many transfers, 
ordinarilv excellent students, have difficulty in adjusting themselves 
to the new environment of the college and thus are failing in courses 
the first part of the semester. Isually. the transfers are successful in 
earning good grades before the end of the first semester. 

Practice Causes "Nastiness" 
\nf)ther unfairness of the Dean's Board is "the nastiness" and the 
"raillerv" which results. To us nothing is more disgusting than to 
witness' college men and women rush over to the Dean's Board, memo- 
rize the names of their friends who are posted as failing course, and 
then to ru^h back to these students and in a gloating manner tell them 
of their failure. These students show no consideration about the 
rea^^ons for the failure. Automatically the student is classed as an 
inferior, justlv or unjustly. Also, the cheap, vulgar, assminic conver- 
sations about' the "king"" and "queen" of Dean's Board, the student 
failing the most courses at mid-semester, is deplorable. 
Substitutes for Dean's Board 
What substitute is there for Dean's Board? To us. two alternatives 
are presented, bi manv colleges each student has a number, known 
only to the Dean's ofifice and himself. At mid-semester his number 
and the courses he is failing are posted. Thus, the student alone 
knows whether he is failing, and the fear, embarrassment and personal 
pride are not disturbed bv the heckling of his fellow students. 1 he 
second method, and to us the better, is to have the students obtain 
their grades from the advisors, as do the first-year men and women. 
A student's grade in a course is his own business, and it will do no 
good to the student to let the entire college know that he is failing a 

Opinion of Faculty and Students 

Recently, in a Collegian questionnaire, ten students selected at 
random, stated unanimouslv that the Dean's Board should be a^ 
boli^hed This week, of the nine faculty members asked, six stated 
that Dean's Board should be abolished. Admittedly these 

Bedtime story . . . 

Once upon a time last week there 
was a Stockbridge freshman who 
worked a couple of hours on a subject 
and steadily lost ground. So he de- 
cided to drop the stuff and go out for 
the evening, even as you and I. While 
he was out, he ran across a student 
who had already had the course and 
told him ail the answers. 

And that, children, is why seniors 
have bigger heads than freshmen. 

A ready wit ... 

Men working on the Goodell Library 
rise to any emergency. One lad was 
working on top of the ventilator up 
on the roof, when he was hailed from 
the ground. 

"Hey Joe! Hey Joe!" 

"What do you want?" inquired Joe, 
the man working on the ventilator. 

"You're wanted on 
the boss called to him. 

Joe glared down the four stories to 
the ground. 

"Who," he demanded, "me?" 

Spirit of '34 . . . 

Victorian ideas on the campus 
are being shattered by a lady 
with the modern spirit. As she 
was walking past a gent who had 
bent over to tie his shoe lace, 
temptation was king, and the 
gentleman straightened up im- 
mediately at the blow. He opened 
his mouth in a somewhat reddened 
face to demand an explanation, 
but she beat him to the draw. 

"None of your false modesty, 
now," she said crisply. 

B. V. contributes further to the stew- 
dent's dictionary ... | 

Mandate: Engagement wifh a fel- 
low, i.e., "I have a mandate this 

Solo: Quiet singing which is good 
for the soul, as "He sang solo I 
couldn't hear him." 

Diapason: What a baby wears, as 
"Has the baby his diapason?" 

Bamboo: A kind of drawing on the 
skin made with a needle, as "The man 
was covered with bamboo." 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

Realizing the importance of other 
business that may have kept the 
Roving Reporter from my doorstep 
last week, may I also be permitted to 
come forward with a few words in this 
inconsequential matter. 

Perhaps the student groups do need 
leaders but has it ever occurred to 
some of its officers that there must be 
a goal to which to lead? Once in the 
days of sophomoric pranks and the 
heights of interclass rivalry, to say 
nothing of anti-administration activi- 
ties, the class officials might hope to 
perform some duties of leadership and 
guidance among their classmates. To- 
day, Joe College no longer needs to be 
restrained in advertising his Alma 
Mater, (I might say he is encouraged), 
while the freshman also needs no 
stimulation in his devotion to that 
good lady by the old-time banquet 
scrap and cane rush. The ballot list 
presents a number of posts left far 
out of water by the receding tide of 
class activities for which men are duly 
nominated, elected and forgotten. 

Class interest, if taken as a measure 
of present day executives, indicates 
the relative unimportance of organi- 
zation. How many students can be 
gathered to attend a class meeting? 
How many students keep in touch 
with the officers after they are elected? 
And what is more important, how 
many, officers included, know the 
function of each office or could tell 
what has been done in the name of 
the class during the past year? 

1 have no personal criticism of the 
officers. They are without doubt 
leaders in their classes and worthy of 
the phone!" | the honors they bear, but how many 
visualize the responsibilities and pos- 
sibilities of a purposive class policy? 
How many students are willing to see 
that their officials perform other than 
routine duties? 

In fact, it would be well for all 
concerned to question themselves, at 
least once in their four years, as to 
what unique function the class officers 
perform that is vitally necessary in 
the present scheme of things and how 
these executives may be true repre- 
sentatives of class wishes, accomplish- 
ments and ideals. 

The time for apathy and passing 
the buck is past and the time for 
reorganization and redefinition has 
come if what little power and meaning 
the present officials possess is to 
justify their existence as "leaders." 
But I am sincerely afraid that we 
I shall continue to elect class officers to 
run class meetings to elect class 

I officers.

Team to Victory 

With Debriddi Devakul in the 
starring role, the freshman soccer 
team closed its season last Thursday 
with a crushing 3-1 victory over its 
Deerfield Academy rivals, the Western 
Massachusetts champions. Inspired 
by the previous days win over the 
sophomores, the frosh flashed a per- 
fectly coordinated passing attack and 
a well nigh impenetrable defense. 

Devakul performed the rare "hat 
trick" of scoring three goals for his 
team. He managed to get the ball 
past the Deerfield goaltender early in 
the first period and repeated later in 
the second and fourth periods. Surdan 
scored for Deerfield. 

The freshmen have enjoyed their 
most successful season since the in- 
augiu'ation of soccer in 1930. In their 
first game they held the Amherst 
frosh to a 2-2 tie. Last Wednesday 
they beat the sophs 3-0, first fresh-

lich, Tufts fullback and captain, made 
a first down on the Maroon and White 
40-yard marker. Two tries at the line 
availed nothing and on the next play 
Keith faded back and heaved a beau- 
tiful aerial which Hingston took on 
the 17-yard line and continued the 
remaining distance for a score. Keith's 
attempted place kick was wide of 
the mark. 

After Nietupski kitked oflF to open 
the contest, Tufts ran the ball back 
to their own 34-yard line, and Keith 
kickcKl to the 25-yard marker. Koenig 
made five yards and Stewart picked 
up two. Allen was thrown for a loss 
and Stewart punted out of bounds on 
the 11-yard line. Tufts returned the 
punt and a Maroon and White pass 
was intercepted by Hingston. Koenig 
pulled down McLean for a two-yard 
loss and Keith then kicked over the 
goal line. 

The Statesmen, putting the ball in 
play on the 20-yard marker, reeled 
off seven yards on Stewart's plunging. 
Johnny then kicked to the Jumbos ! 
41-yard line. Tufts' drive started i 
when McLean and Froelich rang up 



Paul Schaffner, Johnnie Stewart, 
and Bill Davis were honored by the 
Williams varsity by selection on the 
all-opponent football team. 

a first down. Then came the fatal 
Keith to Hingston pass for a touch- 
down and Tufts was leading, 6-0. 

Froelich kicked off for Tufts and the 
Maroon and White failing to make a 
first down, Stewart kicked to the 
Tufts 17-yard stripe. Peterson and 
Shulkin downed Hingston for an eight 
yard setback. Froelich, however, made 
it up on the next play, and Keith 
punted to midfield. Stewart returned 
the kick to MacLean, who was 
downed on the 18-yard line by Adams. 
Borden kicked to State's 30-yard line, 
and Murphy picked up eight yards on 
three plays as the period ended. 

Stewart punted to start the second 
period and Tufts, after failing to gain 
kicked outside on the State 22-yard 
line. State failed to gain and Stt^wart 
was forced to punt. 

Borden was thrown for a five-yard 
loss on the first play but a Frolnrg to 
Borden aerial gained seven yards. 
Frol>erg kicked outsirie at the State 
10-yard marker. Fili|)kowski raced 
around end for 24 yards on his first 
attempt. Koenig tore through the 
line for another first down. Two more 
plays were held for no gain and 
Stewart punted. Fnjberg returned the 
kick to the middle of the field. Stew- 
art passed to Sturtevant for a first 
down on the 28-yard line. Another by Stewart to Adams placed the 
ball on the 14-yard line. Again a pasH 
but this time incompleted as it fell 
behind the goal line. An interception 
of a pass by (irinnell gave Tufts the 
ball on their 13-yard stripe. FrolH>rg 
punted to midfield. Stewart con- 
tinued the aerial game and thr(>t> in- 
completed passes were hurled l)efore 
the half ended. 

Filipkowski returned Tufts kickoff 
15 yards. Tufts held and State was 
forced to kick. Hingston made eight 
yards on a reverse and FrtK'lich made 
it a first down. Two rushes and 
another Frol»erg to Borden pass added 
another first down. The State line 
threw the ball carriers for a loss on 
the two next plays. Froel)erg puntiMl 
and Stewart returned the kick It 
was a beautiful 62-yard hoist. 

After Tufts made a fii«t down, 
Frobtirg punted. Stewart tore through 
tackle for eleven yards. A long aerial, 
Stewart to Davis, was knocke<l down 
by Borden and State had to kick. 
Peterson broke through the line to 
bliK-k Frolwrg's kick and it was 
State's ball on the Tufts 26-yard line. 
Stewart heaved a pass to Davis who 
was unable to catch it. ('arlyn, Tufts 
center, intercepUfd the next pass and 
Tufts kicke<i to the State 32-yar(i line. 

Johnny continued his barrage of 
passt>s and Filipkowski pulled one 
down for a first down. A Stewart to 
Davis forward with a Davis to Con- 
Holatti lateral on the end made a first 
down. This, the «)nly laU-ral SUite 
tried, worked excellently. State was 
still throwing pasm's as the final 
whistle ended the game. 

The Maroon and White outplayed 
Tufts throughout most of the giime 
and had the l>etter of the going except 
when Tufts .sctired. Stewart, Allen 
and Filipkowski stood out in the 
State backfield, while Schaffner, Peter- 
son, Shulkin and Ko.ssitt^r playtHl a 
great game in the line. The Tufts 
veteran outfit had Fr(H>lich, Hingston, 
Borden and Frt>lH*rg very effetrtive in 
the backfield. while (irinnell and 
WcMKlworth stood out in the line.

Under ideal playing conditions the 
Stockbridge football team, led by 
Captain Reid, overwhelmed the 
Deerfield Academy warriors by the 
score of 12-0 before five hundred 
spectators, Friday, November 23. 

The first score came in the first 
quarter by a 40-yard run by (loodwin. 
The final score came in the .second 
quarter as a result of a 60-yard drive 
which the Deerfield team were power- 
less to stop. 

In the second half, Deerfield re- 
sorted to an aerial attack as tln>y 
failed to gain through the Stockbridge 
line. The alert Stockbridge seccindary 
broke up all passes. The game ended 
with the ball in Deerfield's po88es.sion 
on their own ir)-yard line. 

Coach Red Hall used all of the 
seniors on the squad, as this was their 
last game. The outstanding players 
for the seniors were Captain Reid, 
Ball, Blondy and Ratte. (loodwin

coached by Lou Bush, downed 
the sophomores in an interclass 
game. 2-0. Tuesday afternoon, 
on Alumni Field. 

The lone score came in the 
third period when Avery of the 
sophomores was downed Ijehind 
his own goal line for a safety. 

The freshman team was se-

members of the Frosh league 
teams. The sophomore team 
was composed of varsity men

This is the third game in the 
series of six that the frosh have 
won. In 1929 the sophomores 
scored their lone victory, while 
two others were scoreless ties.

exhibition of Cossack dancing, a 
novelty dance number, and a \ocal 


Since sorority closed rushing dates

probably composed almost entirely of 

Within two and a half weeks there 
have been scheduled six dramatic 
productions, the Bay State Revue and 
the Amherst Masquers' production of 
Yellow Jack being two of the earlier 
productions. Tonight, the Amherst

Compulsory Military Training Upheld 

By Decision of U. S. Supreme Court 

Thi.s decision upheld the 8uapei.sion 
by the Regents of the University of 
California of two students who refused 
to comply with the ruling because of 
religious and conscientious objections. 
The Regents of the University had 
previously refused to make the course 
optional and to exempt the two stud- 
fnt.s, lioth sons of ministers in the 
Metiiodist-Epi.scopal Church. 

In an opinion read by Justice 
Sutler, the court said: 

•rnment. Federal and State, each in its 
■; "iTp owes a duty to the people within its 
■'M to preserve itself in adequate strenKth

iVsident Baker, when interviewed 
•■pRarding the decision stated his 
^Pini< n had not changed since last 
•"ehriiiiry when he issued the following 
«atMr. nt regarding R.O.T.C: 

■ lj<Oievc military training is promoting 

[lirit among the student. . . So long 

.;p is under contractual relations with 

"*' ' ■ .'i Kovernmenl and so long as I can see 

'*^ iriK from military drill in the way of 

t'liVs;. ■ tterment of our students. I shall favor 

■'"J Mtion of military t.aining." 

De.jn William L. Machmer also 
«xpres-f.d himself in favor of the 
Pfeser.i policy. 

^teea of the Massachusetts State College 

authority require able-bodied male 

' take military training. This docs not 

*ever, that such students must bear 

; *''' iny hostile power, offensive or defensive, 

■^ ' :■ .ire. In accordance with our present 

■' ' arrangement I am in favor of con- 

, ""^'' present policy of requiring all able- 

; students, excepting only tho«e who 

can present definite evidence that they are bona 
fide memljers of a recognized order that has al- 
ways held military »«'rvice as a violation of their 
basic Ix'lief." 

Colonel Charles A. Romeyn, head 
of the department of military science 
and tactics, complimented the Court 
on its deci.sion. "It is just what I 
would expect from a lot of intelligent 
and sure minds." 

Rev. T. Barton Akeley, Mini.ster of 
Unity Church in Amherst and advi.sor 
of the Social Science Club, stated that, 

"The ruling is obscure in its formulation but 
clear in its intention. It says the Govcrnnient 
within its juriwlirtion owes its citizens the main- 
tenance of peace, order, and law enforcement. To 
me that means police service. The contHxrtion 
with military training is hard to .see. If the Court 
means that the (iovernnient needs a military 
education to maintain its powrr and to enforce 
its laws, then the Court is anti( ipating a govt-rn- 
mcnt whii h dfx-s not represent its iieoplc. but 
willing to maintain it.scif by force. 

"If (iovernnient owes anything to religion, it 
owes it the right to lie religion, and if one's religion 
is incomiKitible with war then it is incompatible, 
and comiuilsion over religion means the with- 
drawal of freedom. Take away the right of con- 
st ience and you have a state without 
Talk alKiut rights is then superfluous." 

The Director of Religious Education 
J. Paul Williams, expressed the view: 

"The ruling merely asserts ttw right ol the 
Land Grant tolleges to require military training; 
the colleges themselves de< ide whether that 
right is to be exercised. Many I^nd Grant col- 
leges act in an irreligious manner in requiring of 
all students, no matter what their convictions, 
the courses in military training. Our own s< hool 
offers exemption to those students who, U-cause 
of conscience, are opposed to military training, 
(though not to those who desire exemption on 
trivial grounds), and thus places it-self among that 
group of colleges which puts loyalty to (x)d and 
consicience afmve loyalty to the State. No right 
is more sacred than the right to follow the truth 
as we see it. whether that leada us into pacifiam 
or militarism.''

Newman Club Sponsors 
Lecture by Dr. Connolly 

Reverend Doctor Terence L. Con- 
nolly of the Society of Jesus will 
deliver, under the auspices of the 
Newman Club, a lecture on "The 
Poetry of Francis Thompson" on 
December 13 at 8 p.m. 

Rev. Connolly, profes.sor of F^nglish

expected that Rev. Connolly will read 
some of the poetry of Thompson at 
this afternoon tea. 

In 1932 Rev. Ctmnolly edited the 
complete poems of Francis Thompson, 
together with biographical and textual 
notes. In his work on Thompson, 
Rev. Connolly has Ijecome intimately 
associated with Mr. Adelman of 
Chester, Pennsylvania, who has col- 
lected much on Thompson. 


On December 9 Rev. Hilda Ives 
will address the student body in 
Sunday Chapel. She is the rural 
executive secretary of the New Eng- 
land Town and Country Church Com- 
mission and comes here in that 
capacity. In 1932, on her last ap- 
pearance here. Rev. Ives addressed 
the student IxKly in Sunday Chapel 
on rural churches. 

Mrs. Ives was born in Maine and 
took her honorary M.A. from the 
University of Maine. After gradua- 
tion she was ordained minister in a 
Congregational Church. In addition 
to her work in New England, for she 
is very active in rural church work 
throughout New P^ngland, she is 
pastor in a Regional Federation of 
Parishes in Maine and serves three or 
four communities.

With the coming of the new fiscal 
year on last Monday, the Placement 
Service, under the direction of Prof, 
(luy V. (llatfelter, has made a number 
of changes in student employment on 
campus. The chief differences will Ikj 
that each worker will have a few less 
hours of work per month for the re- 
mainder of the college year, and that 
all emergency jobs of a temporary 
nature have been abolished until 

For the past several months the 
college has been spending for student 
help the sum of $2800 a month, in- 
cluding FERA and general emergency 
(state) grants. 

Some changes in personnel of the 
student workers has been made neces- 
sary by a check-up made by the 
placement service office on the scho- 
lastic standings of student workers. 
Efforts are being made by the service 
to eliminate a numl)er of student 
positions calling for manual labor, and 
to substitute for them positions which 
will he of greater value in training the 
workers for future occupations. 

Effects of Foreign 
Students Discussed 

"America is in the spotlight. The 
eyes of the world are upon us. Ten 
thousand students from every land 
are now enrolled in our colleges; other 
thousands are eager to come," de- 
clared Mr. Charles D. Hurrey, general 
secretary of the Committee on Friend- 
ly Relations among Foreign Students, 
who addressed the student body at 
Convocation this morning. 

"Dr. T. V. Soong, Minister of 
Finance from China, found a fellow 
Harvard graduate in the White House 
as President of the United States; he 
negotiates a fifty million dollar loan 
and reassures America concerning the 
loyal friendship of the Chinese people. 
Matsudka, chief spokesman at Geneva 
for Japan, makes public recognition of 
his American education at the Univer- 
sity of Oregon. The present Chinese 
ministers to France, Ru.ssia, and the 
United States are graduates, respec- 
tivel, of Columbia, the University of 
Virginia, and Cornell," continued Mr.

The Military Hall, the social high- 
light of the fall semester will present 
to its dancers at the Drill Hall this 
Saturday evening, something different 
in the way of decorations. The com- 
mittee is attempting to portray in the 
decorations a vivid picture of a camp 
site at which the senior cadets Htop[)ed

Fort Ethan Allen. Elaborate prepa- 
rations havt' been made to import the 
natural setting nece8.Hjiry for such a 
venture and neithttr time nor effort is 
iM'ing .saved to delay the fulfillment of 
the present plans. 

The now famous Ed Murphy of 
Worcesttsr will provide the music for 
the occasion and with his reixsrtoiro of 
both fast and slow numbers surely will 
satisfy the tastes of all present. 
Murphy, who has played hero several 
times before, has recently finished a 
very successful summer season. Lately 
he has been touring New England. 
During this tour ho was reengaged in 
several large cities because of popular 
demand. In nearby Springfield, he 
grew to such popularity that he was 
recalled to Cook's Mutterfly Hallruom 
on three successive Saturday nights. 

The pre-dance sale of tickets is 
unusually heavy; thus all indications 
[Kiint to an enjoyable party with good 
music and a propter atmosphere fur- 
nished by unusual decorations. 

The chaperons for this Ball will l)e 
Col. and Mrs. Romeyn, Major and 
Mrs. Watkins, Capt. and Mrs. Hughes. 
President and Mrs. Hugh P. Haker, 
and Dean and Mrs. William L. 
Machmer will be the invited guests of 
the Committee. 

The Military Ball committee is 
composed of Albert F. Burgess Jr., 
chairman; Curtis Clark, Fred Cor- 
coran, William Muller, Kenjamin 
Wihry, the junior member of the 
committee being Cadet I.aubenstein.

Dear Sw«"li»aer<l - 

Does tiiat liive you an idea? 


Several professors have rei«.rted the disappearance from the 
library of books which are essential t<. the students in certain courses, 
and the college librarians have reaffirmed the too well-known fact 
that it is impossible to keep textbooks and reference books from 
vanishing, not only from the general shelves, but even from the shelves 
behind the desk. 

There is no doubt that a few self-privileged students are taking- 
borrowing, they would say-these b<K.ks. As a result, the other 
students can do onlv inferior work in certain courses, and the value 
of the library is greatly decreased, for the books are usually valuable 
and sometimes irreplaceable. 

There are two kinds of students taking the books— those who 
wdk out of the librarv with them with every intention of adding to 
their private collection and not the slightest of returning them at the 
end of the year, and those who thoughtlessly "borrow them for a 
few months." 

Those who belong to the first type hope to give themselves a 
better chance to pass the examinatit)ns that are to come at the end 
of the year. It is time someone told them of the examinations m 
hone'^ty unselfishness, and consideration of other people that they are 
taking every minute of the year— and flunking. As for the second type, 
perhaps only a clear explanation of how they are injuring their fellow- 
students will be enough to persuade them to bring back the books 
they have already taken now, instead of in May or June, and to pre- 
vent them from taking more. 

The students of Massachusetts State College are altogether for- 
tunate in that they have access to every book in the library, instead 
of being restricted to the classified index and call system— which is in 
use in most of the colleges in this country. Take care that the college 
is not forced to threaten you with such a system— and all tJie dis- 
advantages it entails.

{Excerpts front a recent address by Nicholas Murray Butler) 

Happy indeed is the American youth who is led up to the high 
places from which he can see and appreciate those permanent intel- 
lectual moral and spiritual forces whose working gives to civilization 
both its meaning and its ideals. What this signifies is that after the 
technique of apprehension has been gained through a knowledge of 
arithmetic, algebra and geometry, of grammar and rhetoric, of the 
elements of scientific method and of at least one other language than 
th'it which is native to the student, he shall be offered guidance to- 
ward comprehe.isi<.n of fundamental scientific principles, toward 
appreciatitni of excellence and beauty in the fine arts, toward a knowl- 
edge and love of all that is best and finest in the literature of the 
world toward a comprehension of the economic and social influences 
at work in the world, toward an understanding of that general move- 
ment of human forces which is recorded in history, and toward those 
moral and religious insights and ideals which have always played so 
controlling a part in shaping human conduct and in providing it with 
motive. When this shall have been dime, the y(mth will have been 
offered the training worthy of a free man. He will have gained the 
bmi. of a libera! education. It will then be his personal responsibility 
so worthily to u>e hi. knowlclKC and hi. training that he himself will 
steadily grow in mind and in chai.uter. His fellow human beings 
will be the better and the ri< her for h\> presence in the world and no 
Mngle <me of them will be harmed, nuic h less exploited, by him. It is 
i„ ihi. way that the trained youth ..f the nation can lead and guide 
cmr .(.imlrvV publi. oi'ini'"i toward that true union of thought and 
frelint; and' a.ti.Mi, which i> not .,nly the ha.i. of .trength but the

To the Editor of the Collegian 

One hundred and sixty years of 
American democracy. seventy-two 
years of the Massachusetts State 
College — what has Iwen accomplished 
by either and what is the relationship 
of one to the other? 

The democracy, founded upon the 
belief that al« men are created free and 
equal, and shall be unhampered in 
their individual pursuit of happiness, 
is indeed noble in spirit, but noble- 
ness of spirit cannot alter the fact 
that the moral worth and intellectual 
clearness of the individual citizen determine the strength, stability 
and success of that democracy. As 
the United States is a great nation 
covering an area as large as that of 
Europe, a union of one hundred and 
twenty-five million individuals, each 
seeking to remain an individual as 
that may or may not benefit him, so 
too is the Mas.sachusetts State College 
a great institution. Each has, in the 
past, accounted for itself well; each 
has schooled men to take places of 
responsibility and trust, and each has 
now reached a turning point. 

As want and need make themselves 
felt upon our people, as the gaunt 
spectre of pauperism stalks among us, 
Communism and Socialism rear their 
ugly heads above the confusion, and 
search out eager ears. So too. at the 
State College, comes the cry of the 
undergraduate - grow, grow, bring 
your friends, canvass the high schools, 
sound the trumpets, open the gates! 
Is size to be confused with grandeur, 
is scale to be the gauge of stability? 
As industry has expanded beyond the 
safety zone, so too has the American 
university. The prayer of the parent 
has been "A college education for my 
son, education for him that he may 
have what I have dreamed of." "An 
education, I demand it, has been the 
cry of the son," and on all sides after 
that son enters college, one hears the 
same sentiments, — Get by — have 
fun — that course is over, thank God. 
Shall the United States endure as e 
republic, shall shifting corruption bt 
accepted rather than a permanens 
beaurocracy? Shall the Massachusetta 
State College yield before the de- 
mands of each proud parent and each 
conceited son? Shall, as a Collegian 
reporter stated, the physical education 
building, the memorial building, and 
the library become the center of 
college activity, or may, as Thomas 
Huxley said in his address at the 
opening of Johns Hopkins University 
fifty-nine years ago: 

"May the university fulfill its high 
purpose; may its renown as a seat of 
true learning, a center of free inquiry, 
a focus of intellectual light, increase 
year by year, until men wander 
hither from all parts of the earth, as 
of old they sought Bologna, or Paris, 
or Oxford." 

A Conservative 

When this article was being written, 
it was the sole intent and purpos,; of 
the Chinee-man to uphold the cultural 
side of this institution, even if it was 
only the agri-cultural. In fact the 
Chinee-man had heard so many stories 
lately dealing with the sordid facts of 
life, about kitchen sinks and kidnap- 
ping and polymorphonucleated leuco- 
cytes, to say nothing of such inci- 
dental subjects .IS gin and cold oat- 
meal and unfortunate people who have 
had their coats borrowed from the 
cloak rooms, that he felt the urge to 
seek refuge in some of those spiritu- 
ally uplifting tales of his youth. 

So swish-swash went the dust from 
oflF that delightful volume of Schiller's, 
Die Jungfrau von Orleans (or Joan 
Dark, as the French naively put it , 
and the Chinee-man prepared for his 
little trip back into the Never-never 
Land of an earlier day. The reader, 
no doubt, will recall the story of the 
chaste young maiden with the De- 
mentia Praecox (paranoia) complex 
who heard voices, and had hallucina- 
tions of grandeur. At this point, the 
Chinee-man recalls the time his Uncle 
Gus heard voices in the old apple tree. 
They called it delirium tremens then, 
especially when the old boy began to 
see Eve's green Tempter dangling 
from the bough. But to get back to 
Joan - the reader will again remem- 
ber how she did the dirty deed, jiltiKl 
her lover for the sake of God and her 
country, and ran off to war shouting, 
"Fili me boni belli." and other partri- 
otic .sentiments. 

The Chinee-man realizes, of course, 
that these remarks have been rather 
disparaging. Joan wasn't a bad sort 
after all. Probably the trouble with 
Schiller and all these modern biogra- 
phers is that they are apt to give 
false impreswiorw. The poor unsus- 
pecting layman is so used to being 
duped that he never realizes when he 
is actually being boop-boop-a-duped. 
Having a nodding acquaintance with 
several Joans, and a cinema ac- 
quaintance with the species Blondell 
and Crawford, the Chinee-man has 
concluded that the Maid of Orleans 
did not depart radically from the 
normal. Also, being somewhat of a 
Freudian psychoanalyst, he knows 
positively that she must have had a 
love life of some kind or another. So, 
unless the reader wishes to wade 
through Schiller's dry and dustry 
interpretation, he had better be satis- 
fied with this attempt at Freudian

SOCCER TEA M SELECTS DA VIDSON j winter track program 

CAPTAIN FOR COMING SEASON includes seven meets 

I'lction of James Davidson, inside 
right for the past two years as captain 
of next year's soccer squad was an- 
nounced Tuesday evening at a banquet 
tendered the senior players by Coach 
Larry Briggs. 

Dtividson, who is an English major 
and a member of Theta Chi, will be 
the .second captain in five years of 
j^tate soccer history to play in the 
forward line. Since his sophomore 
vear, he has played practically every 
ininute of varsity competition and 
completed this year's season tied in 
the lead for high scorer. 

Featuring a clever attack, Davidson 
has displayed talent in all depart- 
jnents of soccer. His tricky dribbling 
especially has baffled most opponents 
and brought the ball within scoring 
distance. This ability proved es- 
pecially valuable in the last three 
games, as on one occasion, with the 
count 2-0 for Fitchburg, Jim pulled 
through three defense men to score. 
Other noteworthy features of the new 
captain's play are his accurate pass- 
work, both with feet and head, and 
aggressive leadership in playing the

I scheduled for the winter track program 
the team anticipates a successful sea- 
son this winter. As usual, the sea.son 
opens on January 26, with the K. of C. 
meet at the Boston Garden. This is 
the first of three con.m>cutive meets 
which are esstmtially relays, but in 
which Captain Shaw, Stepat, Murray 
or Guenard may be entered individu- 
ally. The complete program is as

Starting his second season as coach 
of vfirsity basketball, Mel Taube has 
his hoop men working out daily in the 
cage in preparation for the opening of ' 
the season in January. I^st year's 
I team was one of the greatest ever 
produced at the college, turning in an 
undefeated season. 

Coach Taube has some dependable 
veterans available this year. Co- 
captains Davis and Jaworski will again 
see action in their center and defense 
berths, respectively. Johnny Stewart 
who won the cup last year for being 
the most improved player on the 
team, will be at his old forward berth. 
These three men will provide the 
nucleus around which Coach Taube 
will build his quintet. 

Nassif, Consolatti, McConchie. 
Mueller. Thayer, and Allen, who saw 
service in previous games, will be 
trying out for positions on this year's 
combine. Valuable sophomore ma- 
terial is also available.

JVxANY men of the South have 
Jbeen "in tobacco" for years— growing tobacco 
and curing it — buying it and selling it — until 
they know tobacco from A to Izzard. 

Now folks who have been in tobacco all 
their Hves, folks who grow it, know there is 
no substitute for mild ripe tobacco.

and where they ought to know something about it— in

of the winner of the Allan Leon Fond 
Memorial Award, 

I'rof. Maurice A. Hlake, the faculty 
treasurer of athletics at Rutgers Uni- 
versity, and for a time the acting 
director of physical education, ad- 
dressed the student body at this 
occasion. Mr. Hlake is a graduate of 
Massjjchu.sett8 State College in the of 1904, and is a member of 
Q.T.V. fraternity. While in college he 
was the vice-president of the senior 
class and also vice-president of the 
Fraternity Conference. He is now 
chief horticulturist at the New Jersey 
Kxperiment Station. 

In special recognition of the unde- 
feated .season of the varsity cross- 
country team, gold shoes were pre- 
ented to the six members by the 
.Student Senate. Football awards were 
made to twenty-three varsity men 
while nineteen were received by soccer 
players. Of the forty-eight receiving 
letters in the three fall sports, twenty- 
one were made to seniors who had 
ended their careers, and to eighteen

Dean's Board To Be 

Replaced By Advisors 

As soon as the administration can 
put into operation a system of ad- 
visors for the sophomores, juniors and 
.seniors, the old and traditional public 
posting of mid-term delinquencies on 
Dean's Fioard will be abolished, a 
recommendation by the faculty cur- 
riculum committee. This system will 
operate just as the present advisory 
system works for the freshman class; 
that is, each student will receive his 
exact standing in a course, and, if he 
Ls in difficulties, his advi.sor will try 
to smooth out the trouble and suggest 
the best possible remedy. 

Until this advisory system is per- 
fected, the future Dean's Board will 
be posted, as the last one was on 
Dec. 7, in a manner to eliminate as 
much as possible, loitering and un- 
pleasant comment. This was done by 
having the sophomore list in the 
Dean's office and the junior and 
senior lists in separate windows of the 
Registrar's office, instead of one com- 
mon place. If a student is below in 
three subjects, or is in other scholastic 
difficulties, he will be summoned for a 
conference with the Dean who will 
endeavor to help him.

Asserting that life is but the sum 
total of a series of individual charac- 
teristics. Rev. Mrs. Hilda I. Ives, 
Rural Secretary of the Ma.ssachusetts 
Federation of Churches, addres.sed 
Sunday Chapel last week. 

Rev. Ives compared the essentials 
of living a full life to learning to play 
the piano. In the beginning, finger 
exercises comparable to development 
of desirable characteristics must be 
practiced. Perfection in these leads 
later, in piano playing, to the striking 
of chords; in life, perfection of indi- 
vidual characteristics is followed nat- 
urally by combinations of commend- 
able traits which strike a deeper note. 
The notes making up the piano key 
and the key of life are gratitude, dili- 
gence, conscience, politeness, faith, 
character, and effort.

individual lamps at each desk. 

There will be a large general read- 
ing room and an equally large and 
convenient room for reserve books, 
which will be conducted on the same 
plan as heretofore. The reference ■ 
room will, in addition have desks for' 
approximately thirty persons, and '

Another point in favor of the site 
besides the view of the Holyoke Range 
and the Berkshires, was its accessi- 
bility as the traffic center of the 
campus. Thirteen other locations 
were suggested, but none was so 
satisfactory as the one chosen. De- 
fending the site against the possible 
objection that the building shuts off

The Religious Council will again 
bring a distinguished to the 
I campus for a three-day conferentre 
' with the students. Dr. Charles W. 
Ciilkey, Dean of the University of 
Chicago Chapel, has been engaged for 
February 10, 11, and 12. Dr. Gilkey 
will give four lectures to the students 
at large, and also he will meet with 
smaller groups in the fraternities, 
sororities, and dormitories. 

Dr. (lilkey, as Dean of the Univer- 
sity Chapel of Chicago, speaks regu- 
larly at colleges thrt>ughout the coun- 
try. He has conducted conferences at 
Williams, Harvard, and Yale, and is a 
regular speaker at Amherst College, 

A graduate of Harvard University 
and Union Theological Seminary, Dr. 
Gilkey has studied in Germany at the 
University of I^rlin and Marburg and 
in the British Isles at the theological 
colleges of Edinburgh, (ilasgow, and 
Oxford, He received the D.D. degree 
from Williams, Brown, Yale, Harvard 
and Colby Colleges. 

During his life he has served as 
Y.M.CA. secretary, pastor of Hyde 
Park Baptist Church in Chicago, 
member of the Board of Trustees of 
the University of Chicago, and as a 
member of the faculty there. In 1924- 
1925 he was sent by the University as 
Barrows lecturer to the student centers 
of India. Dr. Gilkey is the author of 
Jesus and Our Generation, New Fron- 
tiers of Faith, and Present Day Dilem-

Musical Entertainment 
Offered By Many Sources 

Music lovers on campus will have 
ample opportunity to fulfill their de- 
sires during the next few weeks be- 
cause of the large number of concerts. 
The Community Concert Association 
has increased the musical opportuni- 
ties considerably, although other or- 
ganizations offer concerts which are 
open to the public. 

Members of the Metropolitan Opera 
Company and the Philadelphia Symph- 
ony Orchestra broadcast weekly over 
the radio.

Checkup at Cafeteria Reveals 

Students Enjoy Hearty Meals 

A famous physician said a short time 
ago that over-eating was a character- 
istic of modem civilization. College 
students, it may be said, are none too 
hesitant in registering violent opinions 
in direct opposition to a staU'ment 
like this, but when one makes a 
rather careful study of the food con- 
sumed in a year at our own college 
dining hall, the fact is certainly 
obvious that the 390 to 400 persons 
who eat every day at Draper certainly 
account for an astonishing amount of 

In lr>oking over the records given 
by Alan W. Chadwick, manager of the 
dining hall, it is found that meat has 
not been loverlooked as a major part 
of the diet. Eleven tons of beef, 
over six and a half tons of lamb, 
8,379 pounds of fresh pork, .5,156 of 
ham, .3000 of bacon, 1300 of .sau.sage 
and 714.'> of fowl found their way to 
the himgry mouths of those who ate 
at Draper Hall from September 1933 
through September 1934. 

Dairy products, too, are consumed 
in large quantities. 70,1 IB quarts of 
white milk, 2031 cases of chocolate 
milk, 1741 gallons of ice cream and 
8250 pounds of butter were used 
during the same period. 

I Fruit was the most popular dessert, 
according to tlu;s(> records. 1.39 bush- 
els of apples, 2 tons of bananas and 
I 270 cases of oranges, not to mention 
■ the quantititis of strawl>erries, jK^aches, 
pears, pineapples, cherries and other 
fruits, found a ready haven in the 
: digestive systems of the dining hull 

503 pounds (jf yeast were used to 

; raise 3.56 bags of flour into pie crust, 

cakes and bread. 2432 pounds of 

'coffee were brewed, 15,800 pr>unds of 

sugar sweetened things up a bit and 

I 10,.590 dozens of eggs, put up in 

various ways, showed that there are 

] at least a few hens still working hard. 

I All this food consumed and yet the 

eaters were still hungry! The reason 

for it is not known, unless the college 

is developing into a community 

of gourmands. Deady's Diner, the 

Candy Kitchen and various other 

eateries about town find plenty of 

patrons on which to wax prosperous. 

It is a fortunate thing that the dining 

hall arrangement is not such that a 

patron may go in and not come out 

until he has satisfied his appetite. 

Consider a moment, and imagine the 

state of rotundity of the student body 

under such a system - especially the 

co-eds, fellows, especially the co-eds.

developing good will toward and an appreciation of the college 

We find beauty in the sight of the tree itself, but we believe that 
the chief value of the tree is in its symbolization. The Christmas tree 
symbolizes good cheer, merriness, happiness, and the celebration of 
the Christ child's birth. No normal person can look at that tree and 
not be aroused into a spirit of go..d cheer and kindness. To us, the 
merry lights on the tree shining across the campus at night suggest 
that there is something more to be had from college than book 
knowledge. We refer to a cultural and spiritual development. 

At this college too little emphasis is laid upon development of the 
appreciative and artistic qualities of the undergraduate. Most 
students and faculty members ai.i.arently feel that there are more 
important affairs to attend, than concerts, painting exhibits, and 
poetry and art lectures. Our faculty members who are attempting 
to develop the cultural side of the student can be counted on the 
fingers of one hand. There is tm) much emphasis on learning mere 
facts and book knowledge, and not enough emphasis on the appreci- 
ation of the permanent features of life, as music, and literature, and 


Thus we feel grateful that the administration of our college be- 
heves that the Christmas tree has enough art, pictorial and spiritual 
value to warrant the expense of its erection. How unlike the narrow 
spirit of the men in Boston who control the funds of the college, and 
who cry "Not one cent for ornaments for the new library!" We feel 
sorrv for these unfortunate individuals who never developed an ap- 
orec'iation of the beautv in art. These practical-minded persons have 
missed a great deal in life. The campus Christmas tree furnished the 
student an opportunity to appreciate a beautiful symbol.

The hour of weekly convocation begins at eleven o'clock. Much 
dissatisfaction has been expressed by the faculty and the student 
croun about a convocation period so close to the dinner hour. Fhe 
oDi3onents of the present ccmvocation time argue that the student 
3v is restless. imiJatient and inattentive during the convocation 
address because they are hungry and impatiently waiting to bolt fcjr 
the dininvi hall. The refusal of the student body to remain in their 
seats while the faculty and seniors leave the auditorium can be at- 
tributed mostly to a desire to eat as quickly as possible. Thus results 
the mad rush for the exits at the close of convocation 

The convocation is the one hour each week in which the student 
croup is assembled. This hour is an excellent opportunity to tram the 
student bodv to act in a courteous, attentive and gentlemanly manner. 
We do not blame students who have been to classes all morning, to 
become restless and hungry during the eleven o clock convocation 
address. We believe that students would be more attentive and less 
imoat'ient if the convocation hour was placed at nine o clock_ The 
sucents would be less tired and more appreciative of the address. 
Furthermore, the mad. discourteous rush at the close of convocation

Fernald Cliih 

The Fernald Entomology Club will 
meet Thursday at 7 p.m. in Fernald 
Hall. Mr. Thomas Cahill of Spring- 
field will speak on his experiences with 

The gushing young thing wide- 
tracked old Tom on Stockbridge steps. 
She was a cauldron of seething emo- 
tions and several other trite expres- 

"How do you write such lovely 
poetry," she said as she clasped her 
hands in ecstacy. "Won't you please 
tell me how you get such divine 
inspirations," she teased. 

The Chinee-man had thought he'd 
schooled himself to resist each subtle 
invitation of this kind. He had 
solemnly vowed to let no soft looks 
wind their tentacles around his heart 
strings. But those big saucer eyes^ 
staring like a maternal Guernsey! The 
cat was out of the bag! 

Quoth he, "And now you ask me 
how I do my vork, how my inspiration 
comes? I wvi tell you. Very often I 
must wait for weeks and week.s. In 
the meantime, I sit with my quill 
poised in air over a sheet of fool.scap, 
in case the divine spark should come 
like a lightning bolt and knock me 
off my chair. (This has happened 
more than once). While I am wailing, 
I can often think of nothing to do but 
pile up the books on one end of my 
desk, and kick them off on to the floor 
with my free foot. 

But all the while my brain is work, 
work, working, and my poem is 
taking shape. Sometimes it is the 
shape of a fried egg, and sometimes a 
shape which isn't too clear to me. It 
is sort of an amorphous thing with 
three ears but no head. Whin this 
shape presents itself, I get right back 
to bed. I'm no fool. 

After ten years of pipe smoking 
without calling in the chimney-.sweep. 
1 find in my pipe a vast source of 
inspiration. A pipe can be layed acros-s 
the typewriter keys in such a fashion 
that they will not function, or it can 
be made to smoke so badly that I 
can't see the paper. Pipe lighting 
it.self can be made a sacred ritual as 
elaborate as the annual festival to the 
I Moon God in the Galapagos. And 
the knocking out of a pipe can be 
almost as important as the smoking ui 
it, especially if there are nervous 
people in the room. One sharp rap of 
a pipe against a tin waste basket, and 
you have a neurasthenic out of his 
chair and into the window in no 


When the poem is finished, it is 
shipped to the cutting and binding 
room where it is rolled and stamped. 
This process probably account.s for 
the funny appearance and the mi.spell- 
ing in some of the peoms. Then it i.* 
sent to the Collegian office and re- 
written by the oflfice-boy, and sent to 
the publishers. It is then sent back 

to me." 

Having thus amply explained the 
intricate process of poem construction, 
the Chinee-man proceeded to demon 
strate how a poem could be made to 
fit this column. (After all. we have 
to have a poem.) It was almost a 
hopeless task until the Chinee-man 
remembered those happy days of his 
youth spent in his uncle's orchard. 

Those trees are twisted and their 

apples tart; 
Yet generously, like boughs more 

richly blest 
They spread their rough distorted arms 

And offer me their best. 

With no misgiving, I would follow suit. 
And, happy in wisdom of the trees, 
Make no excuse for my meager fnu • 
And no apo|ogies.

Hockey Team Has Essentials 
For Season in Men and Practice 

With excellent material available, 
and in the event of future weather 
(I'lditions favorable to practice, the 
hi rkey team which represents the 
Maroon and White this season, should 
give a very good account of it.self. 
("(lach Ball has already been working 
,iut with his candidates on the pond. 

I'or the first time since their en- 
trance to college, the Peckham twins 
will see service on the Statesmen 
sextet. The two Medford boys were 
all -.'scholastic wings, in high school, 
and should prove to be of great aid to 
the Maroon and White forces. Two 
otiuT newcomers, both .sophomores, 
who should prove to be valuable are 
Dave Rossiter and Bill Johnson. 
Rossiter, who played for Kent's Hill, 
is a defenseman, while Johnson, who 
played for Clark School, plays at 
center, a position left open by the 
graduation of Captain Russ Snow, 
last year. 

The veterans, Ben Wihry, Fred 
Murphy, Jim Valentine, Bill Brown, 
Captain Blackburn, Joe Keil, Fred 
t'orcoran, and Fred Bull, are already 
practicing, and will provide a strong 
nucleus about which ('oach Ball will 
mould his team. These stickmen have 
all earned their letters, and with their 
experience should aid the State cause 

T«» Practice at Stoiiehaiii 

The Statesmen will be better off, in 
the way of practice, this year, than 
they were previously. Thanks to the 
kindness of Doctor Howard (lordon, 
of the class of 1924, the team will be 
able to practice during the Christmas 
vacation. "Doc" Gordon, a former 
hockey luminary and captain of the 
team at State, is, at present, the 
hockey coach at Stoneham High, and 
has offered the use of the school's 
rink to the State sextet for practice 
during the vacation period. Starting 
Dec. 28. the Ballmen will hold prac- 
tice periods two or three times a day 
at Stoneham, until the return to 
.school. If possible, the State squad 
may scrimmage with the Melrose 
High School rinkmen. 

As yet, not all the men have drawn 
equipment, but before the end of the 
week, a full squad should be on the 
ice. Paul Schaffner, captain of the 
football team, is a candidate for one 
of the defense positions.

In the opinion of Tufts and Conn. 
State, Davis, Stewart, Schaffner, 
and Sturtevant were the outstand- 
ing Statesmen in the late football 
season. According to the all- 
opponent team picked by Captain 
Froelich of Tufts, Davis and Stew- 
art rate as first string opponents, 
and Schaffner was left guard on 
the second team. On the Conn. 
State all-opponent team, Schaffner 
alone of M.S.C. is on the first 
team, while Stewart and Sturtevant 
are given honorable mention. 


This morning at Insignia Convo- 
cation recognition was given members 
of varsity teams for the last season. 
A number of the lettermen have 
played their last football game for 
State. Seniors who received letters 
include Captain Paul Schaffner, Vic 
Guzowski, Roger Leavitt, Bill Mul- 
hall, Pete Nietupski, and Rod Cum- 
ming, all linesmen; and Bill Davis 
and Jimmy Moran. ends. Johnny 
Consolatti is the only backfield man 
who will graduate. While most of 
this year's first string linemen will 
receive their diplomas in June, Coach 
Mel Taube will have the makings of 
a real first-class team when football 
season rolls around next fall. This 
year's high power backfield of K(K'nig, 
Stewart, Allen and Sturtevant will be 
available. The Peckhams, Filipkow- 
ski. Murphy and Monroe provide 
plenty of power and fast football so 
Coach Taube shouldn't have to do 
much worrying about fielding a high 
class backfield. In the case of the line 
it is a little different. There will be 
holes to be filled. But there are a 
number of this year's lettermen to 
start with. Dave Rossiter, star soph- 
omore center will provide the necleus 
of the line. Ed Bernstein, Arnold 
Shulkin, I^ester Peterson are linemen 
who have seen much service this year 
and should be in there next year. The 
end positions have four lettermen of 
this year's team. Freddy Ijehr, Terry 
Adams, Wendy Lapham, and Louis 
Bongiolatti, who will be available 
next year. 

With this aggregation of first string 
material and the promising freshmen 
who are coming up, prospects of the 
Maroon and White look especially 
promising and the Statesmen should 
hang up the best record in a number 
of years.

Elected Captain 

Harriers Fetctl !>>■ Cuach Derby 

Coach and Mrs. Derby had as their 
dinner guests last night at The 
Tavern in Holyoke, the Maroon cross- 
country team which enjoyed an unde- 
feated season this year. The entire 
cross-country team, which included 
Captain Stepat, Murray, Proctor, 
Bishop, Gillette, Allen, "Doc" Bryant, 
Samson, Whittemore, and Manager 
Bill Schlaeffer, was present. 

Following the banquet, Ray Proctor, 
outstanding junior, who placed seventh 
in the New England IntercoUegiates 
and tied four times for first place, was 
elected captain. 

At the dinner the table decorations 
were maroon and white; and the 
place cards were of slate, representing 
the clean slate of the team in its fall 

Including Coach and Mrs. Derby 
and their son, there were thirteen 
people present. This is also the 
thirteenth year that Coach Derby has 
been in charge here of the cross 
country teams, nearly all of which 
have been successful. 

With the cross-country season now 
completed, the Statesmen have lost 
two of the greatest harriers ever to 
wear the Maroon and White colors. 
Walt Stepat and Bob Murray, who 
graduate from college this June, 

Throughout their careers as State 
runners, the two Derbymen have al- 
ways been the mainstays of M.S.C. 
track teams. As a sophomore. Bob 
Murray established a new record for 
the course - a record 
which he still holds. This year, he 
again proved the individual star of 
the term. 

Last year, Stepat was never headed 
in the five meets in which he ran. 
This year he tied for first in four races 
and took third in another. 

Ray Proctor, a junior, has proved 
himself a very dependable man, al- 
ways able to stay right along with the 

At present, Proctor will be the 
nucleus around which the 1935 com- 
bine will be built. There are, however, 
the veterans Gillette, Bishop, Bryant, 
and Sampson who will be worthy of 
attention, and with these five runners 
back. State once again looks forward 
to a reputable cross-country season.

Basketball Opponents 
Report First Prospects 

Pre-.season reports from State's 
basketball opponents who have [ivvn 
practicing for the past few weeks, 
indicate varying degrees of difficulty 
will be expected in the Maroon en- 
counters. The majority welcomed 
back the full quota of veterans and 
only three will have green squads. 

Williams, the first opponent, offers 
an all veteran team - six lettermen 
reporting to Coach Caldwell last 
Tuesday. Conn. State and Amherst's 
prospects are doubtful at present but 
the latter has much material from 
which to choose. 

Coach Lash's squad at Wesleyan is 
fortunate enough to contain st'ven 
lettermen. Rhode Island State, with 
Coach Keeney and son at the helm 
is also rich in veterans and, Hi>eking 
revenge, will lie doubly dangerous. 
The Springfield gymnasts also report 
a fine turnout. 

New Hampshire, Clark, and Wor- 
cester Tech have gret^n squads and 
may or may not develop into stfrious 
competition. Tufts, under its new

Again at this season of the year we 
come to the question of ice upon 
which the hockey team can conduct 
regular practice sessions. So far the 
processes of nature have been more 
kind than we could have hoped for in 
our most optimistic moments. We 
have a good ice surface on the pond 
at the present time. But how long 
will it last? However, we refuse to 
lose our optimism and expect that for 
one season the forces of nature will be 
kind and the Maroon and White 
hockey forces can get the practice 
necessary to win games. 

State has had good hockey teams 
in the past but always the lack of ice 
for practice has kept the team from 
coming out on the long end of the 
score in many games. With a little 
favorable practice conditions this, 
year's ice outfit should make an 
enviable record.

likely that another cut will bring the 
number down to the final size for the 

The squad that has been working 
out in the cage seems slated to carry 
on the good name which Maroon and 
White hoop teams have always had 
in basketball circles. With only two 
places of last year's stellar five, left 
vacant, and with much capable ma- 
terial available, including seven sub- 
stitutes with varsity experience, the 
Taul)emen seem headeil for another 
reputable stnison. 

The twenty-thrw men who remain: 
Davis, Jaw<irski, McNally, Moseley, 
Stewart, .Swanson, Crowley, F'ilip-

Thayer, Nassif, Muller, Mct'onchie] 
Bongiolatti, Conant, Allen, Pickering, 
Avery, Fisk, hielH-r, and !^?hr. 

The schedule for this s(>ason is only 
slightly different than the om^ last 
year's undefeated quintet played. Un- 
like last year, the o(>ening game is 
away from h»»me. at Williamstown. 
On January U>, the .Statesmen will b«» 
seen for the first time on the home 
court in a game against ('onnecticut 
State ('ollege, and for the next two 
contests, the Maroon and Whitt* will 
play host to Amherst and Wesleyan, 
on January 19 and 23, respectively. 

Following the stay at home, on 
February 13, the Taubemen will 
journey to Kingston to take on the 
Rams of RIkmIo Island .Stat© College. 
I..ast year's game against the Keaney- 
men was probably the most exciting 
of the season. The contest went into 
two overtime periods b<«fore the States- 
men finally pulled out with a victory 
by the secant margin of two points. 

After this, the hoopmen will be 
home again, playing thrcHj games in 
Amherst Iwfore going out of town. On 
February 9. .Springfield C'ollege will 
provide opposition, and on February 
13, the Statesmen meet Williams for 
the sf^cond time of the season. The 
third game, although not played on 
the State court, will be in Amherst 
and will l>e played at Amherst C^ollege,

On February 18, the Taubemen will 
m«Hjt the University of New Hampshire

In order to encourage the writ in;; 
of good amateur one-act plays, ih 
Extension Service of the Massailu 
setts State College originated a pl.y 
contest last year, which is now dmnu' 
much to stimulate interest in di i 
matics, especially among the runl 
population of Massachusetts. 

This year the contest is being toi,. 
ducted by Miss Ruth Mclntyn 
recreation specialist. Any resident ,,| 
Massachusetts over sixteen years <:[ 
age who is not a professional pla> 
wright, is eligible. The plays art i,, from twenty to forty-five minuii-,, 
and are to depict the desirable pha i s 
of family or community hfe. Ilu- 
contest opened November 15, and i!! 
manuscripts must be in the office of 
the Extension Service by March 1, 


Last year, three prize-winning plays 

were selected and presented durinu 

I Farm and Home Week in July, I hi 

authors choosing their own casts. A 

Xi and the Division of 

at the college were joint 

of a lecture, "Kilauea in 

given by Dr. Harold T. 
Stearns, of the United State Geologi- 
cal Survey, Hawaii, Wednesday eve- ^ 

ning at 8 o'clock in Stockbridge Hall, j jj^j^j^ „„ play-writing was awarded iIh 

Colored motion pictures and slides of j ^^^^^ „f ^y^^^ three.

presented during the lecture. Ur. j become the property of the State 
Stearns also presented an illustrated | College, and are to be available, 

Beginning at the Hotel William Penn, 
the general headquarters, the ninety- 
fifth annual meeting of the American 
Aswjciation for the Advancement of 
Science will be held in Pittsburgh, Pa. 
from December 27 to January 2. The 
program will include addresses, lec- 
tures, exhibitions, excursions and 
demonstrations. During the meetings 
addresses of interest are scheduled 
with .some of the outstanding men of 
their own branches of science. An 
annual science exhibition will be held 
in the new building of the Mellon 
Institute of Industrial Research. The 
extent and quality of the exhibits to be far in of those in 
recent years and includes many new 
events of national interest and recog- 
nition which will apijear for the first 
time, such as the National Geographic 
Society Army Air Corps Stratosphere 
Flight Exhibition. 

Many social events are scheduled 
such as the usual joint smoker for the 
representatives of biological societies. 
In addition, there will be a joint 
smoker for sections in mathematics, 
physics and engineering scheduled for 
the first time. 

This year for the second time, a 
Christmas tree is being erected on 
campus near the College Pond. It 
will be lighted this Sunday and fol- 
lowing the Vesper service, which is to 
be held in Stockbridge Hall at 5.30, 
the students will gather around the 
tree to sing the carols. 

This custom was inaugurated last 
year by President Baker, who, in 
originating this novelty, planned to 
have it culminate in a student gather- 
ing under the tree to sing Christmas 
carols, for the purpose of binding the 
students together in a closer feeling 
for the Massachusetts State College.

Saturday, Dec. 8, in the Drill Hall. 
'] III' dance was both a financial and a 
^(ial success, Ed Murphy's orchestra j up to all expectations. ' 

Starting at 8 o'clock, and going 
tlL'sjugh until 12, the dance, with its 
unique and well-made decorations, 
pr(i\ided those present with four 
hdurs of continuous enjoyment. Ed 
Murphy's orchestra, varying its dances

daiuers an evening of enjoyable music.

Uffcrring to the size of the library, 
Mr. Wotxl declared that the prt^sent 
collettion of volumes numbers over 
100,000 and includes 18 sets of com- 
plete reference books. There are over 
l.'i0,0OO loose, unbound pamphlets 
and .")00 regular periodicals. The 
library has 44 branches throughout 
ihi' huildings on campus, and these 
liranch libraries come under the juris- 
diction of the central Chapel building. 

"How much do you think the 
irttalogue alone is worth?" asked Mr. 
Wwjd. "Probably the average person 
wuuld say $5000 as a liberal estimate, 
liut in actual figures it represents 
.*40,0OO. The catalogue contains over 
2,000,000 references, books, and maga- 
zines catalogued in every possible way. 
.^nd, he concluded, "it costs forty 
cents to put a book in circulation." 

From T.") to 400 new books are added 
each month. Of these more than 
thrw'-quarters are bought at the re- 
quest of department heads from their 
funds. The majority of the others are 
replacements and bound magazines. 
In ehoosing the remainder, Mr. Wood 
buys those few which he, from his 
twenty years' experience as a librarian, 
thinks will be of permanent worth to 
the library. 

Only one out of every fifty maga- 
zines published in this country is 
Ixjught by the library. Limited funds 
make this restriction necessary. Most 
of the periodicals, too, are bought at 
the request of the department heads.

The Stockbridge Agronomy Club 
was formed several years ago for the 
purpose of increasing general knowl- 
edge in the subjects of soil fertility, 
crop management and allied subjects. 
All members of the Stockbridge School 
as well as other persons interested may 
attend. The first meeting will Ik* held 
Thursday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. Ralph 
Donaldson, extension specialist of this 
State, will speak on "Some of 
extensive work in agronomy." The 
meeting will be held in Room 102, 
Stockbridge Hall. 

An informal dance was given by the 
freshmen to the seniors in the "M" 
Kuilding last Saturday evening. The 
music was furnished by Webb Maxon 
and his orchestra. During the inter- 
mission refreshments were served, 
consisting of cookies and ice cream 
with S.S.'36 inscribed on it. A fine 
bit of work was done by R. Hall's 
assistants, Al Chace and Al Fisher, 
in making this dance a success. 

A few days previous to Thank.sgiving 
vacation the annual hat wa.s held 
between the freshmen and seniors on 
the football field. The caps were 
placed on the ."SO-yard line and at the 
sound of Frank Dolan's whistle, the 
rush began. For two minutes there 
was a man-for-man struggle, which 
was followed by a three minute fret>- 
for-all. As a result, the seniors 
emerged with about twice as many 
hats as the frosh and many shirts and 
pairs of trousers were ruined durint; 
the battle. 

Hill: "You oughta put on your red 
flannels, Frank," (as 13. shivers one 
frosty morning in the dog-cart). 

Frank: "1 have 'em on." 

Hill: "What are you shaking for?" 

FVank: "They're making me itch 
like !" 

We understand that John P. came 
in contact with some itching powder 
last Saturday evening as he was 
dressing to take a co-ed to the dance. 
Better luck next time John.

Reverend John H. I..athrop, pastor 
of the Church of the Saviour Hrook- 
lyn, N. Y., answered the tjuestion, 
"What historical evidence is there 
that Jesus ever lived?" in Sunday 
vespers, DecemU'r 9. 

Two weeks ago at the meeting of 
the vesj)ers group, the speaker was 
challenged for quoting Jesus on the 
basis that Jesus never lived. In reply 
this week. Rev. Lathrop tractni the 
belief of Jesus as a myth to a school 
of thinkers in (he last century. This 
school claimtni .le.sus to lie a sun-myth. 
They claim<>d that because the leader 
of Mythra, Christianity's greatest 
rival during the firsi century, was a 
syn myth and not an actual person- 
age, ("hristianity,>d on Jesus, was 
likewise a form of sun worship. 

In the present day, however, there 
is no school of thinkers who hold this 
theory. To say that Jesus is a mythi- 
cal figure, is to date one's religion to a 
past century. As in everything else, 
there are reverberations to the old 
ideas, in this case one .sometimes hears 
th<Kse who know little about the le!H-h- 
ings of religion and wh<) wish to start 
a controversy, bring forth this obso- 
lett' theory of Jesus. 

Reconstruction of the [x>riod during 
which Jesus lived and the person of 
Jeaus blend so perfectly that there is 
no opportunity open for (|uestion. 
Indeed, it requires more of a stretch 
of the imagination to hold .lesus as a 
fictitious person than to acknowledge 
His living.

Revue Attracts 
Large Audience 

iMHt Friday evening, the Roister 
Doisters sponsored the annual Hay 
State Revue, directed this year by 
Professor Frank Prentice Rand, and 
well-attended by members of the 
student body. The revue consisted of 
a series of unrelated skits, thereby 
following the tradition handed down 
by the former "Aggie Revue." 

Of the nine f(>atures pre.H«>iited, the 
most favoridtle comment has lH>t»n 
made oii the revival of the !<)27 film 
"Aggie Men Are (;athere<l," a melo- 
drama in which there ap|M'ared many 
pe«)ple still prominent figures on the 
campu.«. This film was of ••sjx'cial 
interest to ihotw stud<>nts and mem- 
bers of the faculty who, cherishing 
memories of Dr. U«»s<oe W. Thatcher 
and PndesHor Charh's H. Patterson, 
saw pictun>.4 of them which were so 
real that they were almost unciinny. was also paid to the snap 
and emotional appeal of the musical 
numlH-rs, especially the piano duets 
by Helen Downing '.37 and l^'onard 
Parker '35. and the songs by the 
men's gliM' club and the trio com|)os<Hi 
of Curtis Clark •.35. William Mullet 
'35, and Edward V. I^iw '36. 

As it has Iw-en said above, the 
attendance was excellent, even though 
the cast and the audience were 
dominated by the male population of 
the coUegi'. Hoth the ^irls and the 
Roister Doisters regrette*! that no 
satisfactory postponement of the revue 
c«)uld be efTectetl, even though it co- 
incide<l with the sorority clom'd rush- 
ing dates. 

The show was in charge of the 
following Roister Doister memlM-rs 
Edward V. I^iw '36, president of the 
Roi,ster Doisters and chiiirman of the 
Hay State Revue; Ceorge S. ('ongdon 
and Hernice J. Dohin of the wnior 
class; Marguerite M. Ford '3B.

The comic spirit finds its expression 
in drama in varied and often in unde- 
finable ways, but a ijermissibie analysis 
miRht he attempted in terms of wit, 
ridicule and humor. 

Wit appeals primarily to the in- 
telU'ct. Shakespeare's innumerable 
puns, our vaudevillian repartee, irony, 
the lapses in logic which we call 
"Irish bulls." these are exhilarating 
for the mentally alert, and are in 
themselves largely impersonal. 

When the exercise of wit is directed 
against a person, it becomes ridicuU". 
The sense of superiority which is often 
suggested as the single basis of the 
comic spirit implies a victim. C'rudely 
exemplified by the practical joke, the 
April Fool sort of thing, ridicule be- 
comes more artistic in parody, travesty 
and caricature. Hut it is always at 
somebody's expenst;. 

Humor tends to become impersonal 
again and appeals primarily to the 
feelings, particularly to the sense of 
incongruity as aroused by mimicry, 
exaggeration and understatement. 
Humor laughs with us, not at us, and 
usually with an eye for the rather 
obvious and elemental absurdities of 

Now on the stage ridicule usually 
becomes satire, and may indeed be so 

bitter as to escape from the realm of 

the comic spirit altogether. Wit may 

dominate a play without ridicule, 

however, as in the work of Oscar 

Wilde. Or there may be the kmdiy 

and un.sophisticated incongruities of 

humor, as in the picture, Mrs. WiMHi^- 

Technically, however, it is more 

customary to refer to a play of lighter 

type as either a comedy or a farce. 

It is comedy if its Intercast is primarily 

in people; it is farce if its interest is 

primarily in situation. The stock 

situation in farce is mistaken identity. 

Frank Prentive Rand 


Sham is described by its author, 
Frank O. Tompkins, as "a social 
satire." One of the capital divisions 
of literature, satire is in its essence 
criticism of man and his works, whom 
it holds up either to ridicule or scorn. 

The first notable name in the annals 
of Knglish satire is that of William 
Langford, and the greatest was John 
Dryden. Among the satirists, we find 
such names as Horace, Juvenal, I'ope, 
Addison, Burns, Rabelais, Moliere, 
Heine, C'ervantes and Strindberg. 

Sham makes use of repartee, banter 
and sarcasm. It depends upon 
language, mood and subtleties for its 
effectiveness, rather than upon action 
and character portrayal. In this play, 
a gentleman thief exposes to his 
victims the shallowness of their petty 

lives, and ironically preaches to them 
a morality higher than their own. Our 
acting problem is to convey to the 
audience at one hearing those things 
that occur to us only aft'^'" many

ViHHi OI>l> JIM 

Pure farce, as Professor Rand 
points out in his comment, is a kind 
of drama which depends primarily for 
its interest upon situation. It concen- 
trates upon incongruous or ridiculous 
actions, upon absurdities and idio- 
syncrasies of character. Straight 
comedy, on the other hand, is in- 
genious, clever, intelligent, satiric in 
its handling of plot and characteriza- 
tion. "Unlike high comedy," observes 
Robert Metcalf Smith, "which pro- 
vokes thoughtful laughter, the pure 
farce is content to anjuse spontaneous 
merriment and 'the loud laugh that 
speaks the vacant mind.' At its 
lowest it partakes of the slapstick 
buffoonery of the clown, a kind of 
humor that every child and every 
grown-up who is still human finds 
entertaining when Spring brings the 
circus to town." 

From the beginning farce has had at 
its command stock characters and 
situations, such as the braggart 
soldier, the parasite, the imposter, 
the deceitful servant, the shrewish 
wife. ALso, it has u.sed ever domestic 

squabbles and maladjustments, love 
intrigues, broad jokes and much 

William de Mille's Poor Old Jim is 
an interesting example of the farce 
comedy with its story of the convivial 
man (stock character) who forgets 
home and long suffering wife (stock 
character) in the good fellowship of 
his club. (Stock situation.) Again 
and again he argues to turn over a 
new leaf, but never does so until his 
wife and the sympathetic doctor (stock 
character) hit upon a little scheme 
that teaches him a never-to-be-for- 
gotten !e.sson. (Stock .situation.) This 
farce, also, presents a variation of the 
principle of mistaken identity set 
down by Professor Rand as the stock 
situation in farce. In Poor Old Jim 
mistaken identity becomes mistaken 
ruse as will be evident to those who 
.see the play. 

Walter E. Prince 


Percival Wilde's The Moving Finger 
is hard to classify. The author treats 
.some of his characters with a full that links them with comedy 
proper. Yet like Poor Old Jim, this 
play is farcical. Caricature mingles 
with genuine characterization. The 
plot develops by misunderstandings 
and coincidences damned as "absurd" 
by the rigorous logic of fiction. The 
scene, remote from the American 

domesticity of Poor Old Jim and 
Sham, is mythical, a temporary tuial- 
ity that never was. 

Like Sham, moreover, The Muiing 
Finger is satiric. Yet the causticity of 
typical satire is here more than nou- 
tralized by the author's humor. 

The play is witty, even though 
only one of the characters is nimble 
of mind and tongue. The wit is not 
that of repartee; it is revealed in the 
Prologue, and in the author's clever 
manipulation of plot, character, speech 
to fulfill his general satiric intent: 
that of holding up to laughter the 
excessive importance which men of 
high and low degree attach to their 
little lives. 

Hut Percival Wilde loves his charac- 
ters in The Moving Finger, with all 
their ludicrous incongruities, -their 
obtuseness, their vanity and self- 
importance. So he treats them hu- 
morously with the "playful teasing 
fondness of a mother to her child."

Thatcher Hall, the new men's 
dormitory on the hill, will not Iw 
completed before the end of April, 
according to a statement made by 
Fred (.'. Kenney, Treasurer of the 
(College, to a Collegian reporter. 

The building was to have been 
ready for occupancy at the beginning 
of the next .semester in February, but 
an exten.sion of the contract time to 
the first of May has Ix-en made 
neces.sary by the ditficulty which the 
contractors met in obtaining hardware 
and fixtures for the building. 

Progress on tin- (loodell Library, 
due to be completed in June, and to be 
ready for next September, is 
continuing according to the original 
schedule, and no delays are antici- 
pated in the work on this project. 

Graduate Exhibits 
Photograph Display 

The current art exhibition in the 
Memorial Building, selected by I'ro- 
fesHor Frank Waugh, is a collection 
of photographs by Mr. H. R. Ray- 
mouth, a graduate of Ma.s.sachusetts 
State in 1904. The exhibition con- 
tains many unusual pictures of Kuro- 
(M-an scenes, and were taken by Mr. 
Kaymouth in his travels over the 

Mr. Raymouth maj(jred in land-

Yes. Two weeks. It should be understood! Ih;i| tin- student must remain

examinations lontaining more thought questions. Such questi<ms would 
reveal the extent to which the student has profited by the reading period.

the- examinations should be well distributed over the exam period. 

Prof. Frank A. .Moore .\Ia(lM-,natiis 

From obst-rvations gained from students and iastructors in crollc-ges which 
have such a period, I doubt whether its .tdvantagc- in the; field of mathematic.i 
would be as great as in other courses such as eccmomics or history. 

Prof. Adrian ii. LiiiciMey Fi-onom ie.«« 

I would suggest not more than two days or pc-rhajis hitter, to scatter the 
examinations over a period of at least ten days.

. . . And while on the subject of 
poetry. Reinaerd finds by the papers 
that Edna St. Vincent Millay. well 
known poetess and traveller is off to 
new ports, but this time it's a bath 
tub rather than the rip that excites 
her. Miss Millay has engaged a cabin 
with a modernistic bathroom which 
features among its appointments a 
black bathtub. She says that the 
writing which she plans to do in the 
tub will be unlike anything she has 
ever done before. "I won't say it will 
be prose," the poet said, "but it will 
be very different." 

Reinaerd, being in his lighter mo- 
ments a poet himself, does hereby 
offer Millay a challenge and 
defies her to produce from a bathtub 
or anywhere else a rhyme for orange. 


And when I die my dreams shall be 

The smallest cones on the Tamarck tree, 

The whistle of trains on a frosty night. 

The white moth's wings by a tall street-light. 

The sway of a door as you enter in, 

The whimsical charm of a summer wind. 

The kiss of rain on your upturned face. 

The life of a rose, a cobweb's lace. 

The light in your eyes when you look at me — 

All these, when I die, my dreams shall be.

Two other veterans, Corcoran and

Pave Rossiter, the sturdy center 
on the football team, will be a new- 
comer to the State line-up, playiug 
defense along with Murphy. As yet, 
it is undecided as to who will guard 
the nets. Valentine, a letterman, is 
being hard-pressed for the goal-tend-

Either one of these men may appear 
in the line-up.

Jack Sturtevant '36 of Lynnfield 
Center, fiery quarterback, was elected 
captain of the Maroon and White 
football team for 1935, at a me(>ting 
of the varsity lettermen held just 
before Insignia {\)nvocation on Dec. 
13. He first became a Maroon and 
White regular last year when he 
alternated with Jack K(K*nig at center. 
This jmst season ('oach Mel Taube 
was faced with the prospect t)f finding 
a quarterback t<» replace the lat*- Jcm- 
Lojko. Hf shifted Sturtevant to the 
signal caller's posit it>n and Jack piloted 
the Statesmen through one of the

Becauae of his exceptional work at 
halfback and his all round football 
ability, Johnny Stewart '36 i>f Need-

Pond Memorial Mi>dal at Insignia 
Convocation. Stewart was by far the 
lK>st all-r<»und player on tlw Maroon 
and White ••l««ven this fall, excelling 
in all departments of the game. 
Johnny's pa.ssing was the main 
j wea|K)n in the State olVens*' and the 
Stewart to Davis passing combination 
was the means of scoring in a numl)er

Elaborating this text in a manner 
so as to be familiar to both Christian

quoted from the prophets and from 
Jesus showing the similarity of the 
two teachings. Both of these doctrines 
advocate the following and the striv- 
ing continuously for highest attain- 
ments in the eyes of the Almighty God. 

A man who has sufficient to eat, 
proper clothing, and an adequate 
shelter, is not necessarily a happy 
man, because happiness comes from 
a deeper source than the mere physi- 
cal things of living. A man lacking 
in spiritual belief is mal-contented 
and lives a rather vague and listless 

"Be plucky, not happy, because 
plucky is more adequate." In other 
words, try to be content with things 
as they are and be as nearly happy as 
possible, hoping for real happiness in 
the Kingdom of God. Few are happy, 
the rest good sports and plucky.

Completion of the new Thatcher 
Hall dormitory will insure the men 
students at the college with dormi- 
tory facilities which are a far cry from 
the appointments which were in vogue 
*hcn that well known alumnus "Pop" 
f lark was one of the members of a 
ptsi generation of sturdy students at 
Mas-^ichusetts Agricultural College. 
^'r. Clark, in an interview granted 
^''fit lime ago, has recalled many of 
'h»- liardships which he had to undergo 
3t a time when, as he says, "students 
'i^ffl a simple life, but a life which. 
sfter all, was mighty complex." 

The college in those days furnished 
the students with the necessary im- 
Plernints for heating and lighting 
fooms. that is with the exception of 
'"«■! There was an excellent stove of 
the l)f Uy-warming and back-freezing 
^anety, a couple of kerosene lamps

'*<"in.'; was usually empty, unless the 
'tuderit was willing to cart the coal

comments upon the 
in which enterprising fra- 
'*rniti,s rushed freshmen at that 
^*'- He was busily engaged in 
"ekkJng up to the fourth floor of 
College one day when the 


^^'i^« committee of a certain fra- 

ternity happened along. They ap- 
parently saw a good prospect in Mr. 
Clark and conceived the brilliant idea 
of arranging a system of pulleys to 
haul the coal up to the top floor with 
a minimum of effort. Their interest 
I in the problems of freshmen greatly 
I impressed Mr Clark and he joined 
the fraternity 

Lighting arrangements were not 
much better Kero.sene lamps are 
messy and malodorous affairs at best, 
and in combination with the stove 
probably served to get the students 
to bed early and do their studying in 
the afternoon. 

There were no showers in either 
North or South college, either. Even 
the football players were forced to 
bathe in washtubs of the zinc variety 
in the cellar of South College. Other 
sanitary arrangements were also in- 
adequate, too inadequate to mention 
without a mild degree of embarrass- • 

Whether or not the past generations 
of students who lived in North and 
South colleges over forty years ago 
are any better for their experiences 
than the present generation shall be 
the same number of years hence is 
purely a matter of conjecture. One 
thing that is certain, however, is that 
in forty years or so memories of North 
and South Colleges will be lost to 
antiquity and students shall be be- 
moaning the fact that predecessors 
had to be contented with unbeliev- 
ably inadequate living facilities in

Massachusetts State co-eds form an 
ambitious and versatile group if one 
may judge from the number of girls 
engaged in work and the tyi>es of 
work represented. Although Miss 
Margaret Hamlin, placement super- 
visor, is kept very busy fulfilling re- 
quests for work, approximately one- 
half the girls either have been em- 
ployed at some time during the fall 
or are now employed. 

Due to the fact that ERA funds as 
well as department funds are avail- 
able this year, opportunities for work 
are greater than they have been in the 
past. However, some girls have posi- 
tions in the town which do not come 
under these funds. 

There are many varieties of posi- 
tions. They range from purely tech- 
nical positions as laboratory assist- 
ants to those of a clerical nature. 
Practically every department on cam- 
pus uses student labor to some extent. 
Among those using the most girls are 
the Home Economics department and 
the library. In the former, work 
consists of filing, compiling illustrative 
material, clippings, and setting up 
material for lalMjratory experiments. 
Library work includes desk work, 
mending and typing to mention a 
few duties. 

Whenever possible an attempt is 
made to give girls work in a depart- 
ment which is their major or closely 
related to it. For example, education 
majors have an opportunity to work 
on tests and measurements, those 
majoring in home economics assist in 
the home economics laboratory. 

There are a limited number of op- 
portunities for girls to work for room 
and board, or either one of these. 
Some of the girls are placcid in faculty 
families, others in private homes with- 
in reasonable distance of the college. 
Such positions are not advised for 
freshmen because it is felt that they 
need the time for studying. 

Other positions include stenography 
and typing in various offices, filing and 
recording datn, correcting papers, as- 
sisting in laboratories, proctoring in

"The aims of lilx'ral and vocational 
education are not antagonistic; each 
is incomplete without the other. In 
the higher education of the future these 
phases of education must he so inte- 
grated as to develop the whole girl 
and enable her to make a larger con- 
tribution to the progress of the social 
order." With these words. Dr. Ban- 
croft Beatley, President of Simmons 
('ollege, concluded his address at 
this morning's convocation, where he 
addressed the student body on the 
topic "Higher Education for Women 
- A New Venture." 

Dr. Beatley reviewed the entire 
development of colleges for girls and 
co-education, giving as a background 
the contrast between the traditional 
concept of the appropriate position of 
women in the social order, and the 
changes in the life of women brought 
by the coming of the industrial 
revolution. He disclaimed the idea 
that complete equality between the 
sexes has yet been achieved, saying.

Tli«> ruiuint^ fiiiiil «'xiiiiiiiiatiuiiM 

Last week the Collegian questioned ten professors on the need and value 
of a reading period before the commencement of the final examination period. 
A large majority of the professors stated that there was a definite need for a 
period of suspension of classes before final examination week, which should 
be devoted t(» preparation for the examinations. Unquestionably, it is the 
unanimous opinion of the student group that they should be given a few days 
free from attendance at cla.sses in order to study for the examinations. In 
the present plans, classes will continue through Thursday, January 24, and 
final examinations will begin the following day, Friday, January 25, and 
continue for one week. In our opinion, this method is unfair and disadvan- 
tageous to both the professor and the student. 

Tlu' si tun I ion In tlio I'list 

Last year, many complaints were voiced by members of the student and 
faculty groups about the lack of time to prepare for final examinations. In 
previous years, the examination period followed directly after the close of The students felt that they were being rushed into the examinations 
without proper preparation, and thus their standard of work in the examin- 
ations was not as high as it would have been if they had had a few days to 
make a careful preparation. The faculty argued that they did not have time 
to finish up the class work properly before the final examination material 
was thrust upon their hands. 

Are M.S.r. Studi'iitH Overhiiriieiit'd? 

The entire basis for an argument for a reading period at this College is 
based uptm the point that students on this campus are overburdened with 
too many classes and too much required work. A comparison of the credits 
reveals that Massachusetts State students carry at least one more course 
than do the students at other eastern colleges. At the same time, the ma- 
jority of these colleges have reading periods before finals. As we see the 
situation, the latter part of the semester is much more difficult than the first 
part; profes.sors who have not proceeded through the plan of their course at 
a constant rate of speed, rush through the last two weeks, in a frantic effort 
to cover the required work; harassed students struggle with this sudden 
avalanche of material; and semester papers and notebooks must be com- 
pleted Iwfore final examinations. 

The <>l>j«-«tion 

Opponents of a reading period believe that many students would waste 
time during the suspension of, and not do anymore studying than if 
examinations began at once. Our argument to this comment is that college 
education is voluntary. It is up to the student himself to study or not to 
study. It is quite true many students would waste the time during a reading 
period by not studying at all. However, we believe that this type of student 
is far in the minority. Most students have a suflficient sense of responsibility 
and a desire to learn, to take advantage of an additional opportunity to ac- 
quire more knowledge through a better preparation. 

Our PrupoNni 

We believe that this college under the present plan of final examinations 
beginning the day after the end of classes, is not being the most efficient pos- 
sible. We feel that a better type of work would be accomplished by the 
student group in final examinations if they were given a little time to sit 
down and make a proper preparation for the examinations. We feel that the 
scholastic standard of the college would be improved, the burden on the part 
of the student and professor would be lessened, and each would accomplish 
more efficient work. We believe the following plan would be most effective, 
and an experiment should be made: Suspend cla.sses on Tuesday, January 22, 
giving the students two complete days to make a more complete preparation 
for the examinations beginning on Friday, January 25. 


The death yesterday of George Leonard, eighty-five, the oldest living 
graduate of the College, and for many years a leading light in jurisprudence 
in western Massachusetts, recalls a famous story from the past. Mr. Leonard 
was the captain of the now almost mythical six-oared crew that won the first 
intercollegiate regatta at Ingleside, in 1871. The six Maroon and White 
stalwarts sent the name of the college through the country, smashing the 
world's record for the three mile course in defeating Harvard and Brown. 
In 1929, Mr. Leonard received belated recognition for his athletic prowess, 
when he was awarded a varsity letter at a Varsity Club breakfast given in 
his honor. Indeed the college has lost a colorful figure and a valuable friend. 

By Reinaerd 

Act I 
The curtain goes up and we see our 
hero, Oscar, seated at a table figuring 
out his income tax. One can ascertain 
quite readily that Oscar is a very 
patriotic young man for as he works 
diligently over the long columns of 
figures we can hear him tunelessly 
whi.stling the "Star Spangled Banner." 
Oscar, by the way, is one of the few 
persons who knows the name of the 
other .senator from Ix)uisana. 

As the act>H we see our 
hero growing nervous and fidgety. It 
seems that he has put an ad in the 
Lonely Hearts Column and is expect- 
ing a visit from the girl he is about to 
marry. In due time a young lady 
introduces herself to the scene. She 
tells Oscar her name is Sally, but that 
her friends call her Pyramid because 
she is bigger at the bottom than at 
the top, the significance of which may 
be gained by looking at her feet. 
Oscar questions the young lady very 
closely regarding her state of health 
and she finally rather tearfully admits 
that she is troubled with water on the 
knee. This in no way deters Oscar's 
intentions of marriage, however, for 
he overcomes the situation by telling 
her that the only thing she has to do 
to get rid of water on the knee is to 
wear pumps. 

Of course Oscar, being a man of the 
world, feels the need of beginning a 
series of .social relations with Pyramid 
so he invites her to attend the Camera 
fight. But Pyramid refuses. She says 
she will be embarra.ssed because Car- 
nera is going ♦o fight Baer. Oscar 
does not see the point, so they turn 
on the radio and listen to a blow-by- 
blow description of a sneezing contest. 

.kt II 
Act II takes us to Oscar's home 
some months later. It is plainly .seen 
that he no longer needs a rubber band 
to keep his bankroll together. Pyra- 
mid is crying sadly as the curtain goes 
up. Suddenly Oscar dashes in. "Pyra- 
mid," he cries, "I am at engaged 
in remunerative travail." 

At this Pyramid is all in a fizz. 
"What doing?" she eflFervesces. 

"I have a job as a rag man," says 
0.scar, getting down to character, 
"and I'm sure to prosper because my 
boss tells me that that's one line of 
work that's constantly picking up." 
The two love birds dance round and 
round until all at once Oscar stops 
suddenly. One can hear a noise that 
sounds strangely like a cement mixer 
in distress as he .seems to be thinking. 
The climax of the play is reached as 
Oscar utters softly enough for even 
the doorman to hear, "Wifie, what's 
this I hear about your being unfaith- 
ful to me?" 

"Ah, Oscar," she says, "'tis nothing 
but an idle rumor." 

"Ha ha," he retaliates, "so you've 
been taking in roomers." And he 
rushes off to the other room in search 
of a villain. Sadly enough he finds 
one. There is sound of a scrap for a 
while; then all is silent. 

"Pyramid," he calls from off-stage, 
"is this fellow double jointed?" 

"Not that I know of," she bleats 
back. "Why?" 

"Well if he hasn't, I've broken his 
neck!" Of course Pyramid and Oscar 
separate as the act ends. 

Act III 
There has been quite a lapse of 
time between the second and third 
acts. Oscar has prospered very much 
in the rag business and has gained a 
great amount of respect in his com- 
munity. In fact he is running for 
congressman in order to lose the 
respect. As the curtain goes up we 
see the house of Jerry Mander, a 
politician, where Pyramid is working. 
Hoofbeats sound off-stage and we see 
Oscar come riding up. Incidentally, 
he is still in love with Pyramid. He

Little Three Champs 

To Start Veteran Five 

1 Maying against an all-veteran five, 
thf Massachusetts State College bas- 
kfthall team opens its season, this 
Saturday night, in a game against 
Williams, at William.stown. The Royal 
Purple will have the added advantage 
of having already engaged in compe- 
tition against Union C'ollege of S<he- 

The Caldwell men present an un- 
usually strong team this year. The 
five men who brought the Little 
1'hree championship to the Berkshire 
College last year, will all see service 
again. In addition to these five stal- 
warlH, Coach (Charley Caldwell has 
(w't n working out with .some very 
cipable sophomore material in the 
iniM<ii» of Sheehau, 'teller, and Arni- 
.stroug. These three are slated to see 
plenty of service in the ensuing games. 

Captain Alex Kroll, who scored 103 
points in the 1934 campaign, will lead 
his teammates into action from his 
forward position, while being as.sisted 
greatly by Pete Salsich and Buster 
Navins, both brilliant meml)ers of year's combination. Nick Holmes, 
who has already proved his effective- 
ness on the gridiron against State 
teams, will be another performer who 
m:'y cause the Statesmen considerable 
truhle. In the backcourt, Dick 
F(irbes will again face the Maroon 
and White. 

Three I.M'(tf>rin4>n 

The Taubemen will also be well 
fortified in the way of veteran ma- 
terial, with at least three lettermen 
slated to start. Co-captains Krnie 
Jaworski and Bill Davis will be at 
their respective guard and center 
positions, while Johnny Stewart, an- 
other of the 1934 unbeatables, will 
play at his left forward position. The 
other two posts may or may not be 
filled by lettermen. 

Nassif and Lehr are the possibilities 
for the floor guard position, while 
either McConchie or Barr, a sopho- 
more, will start at right forward. 
Nassif and McConchie have Imth 
been members of the Maroon and 
White hoop team, while Lehr and 
Barr will be newcomers to the State 

In the game against the Williams 
team last year, the Statesmen emerged 
victorious by a score of 45 to 35. 
ThLs year's team goes into the Purple 
game without having tasted competi- 
tion, and while still in the formative 
stage, will be playing against an ex- 
perienced and veteran combination. 

Although it would hardly be sound 
to expect anything like a second 
toasiHutive undefeated season, the 
Statesmen should give a good account 
of themselves this year.

Taubemen To Meet Conn., 
Amherst, and Wesleyan 

(Joing into action for the first time 
of the season on its own floor, the 
Maroon and White basketball team 
plays three games at home against 
Conn€?cticut State, Amherst, and Wes- 
leyan, on January 16, 19, and 23, 

In the first game of their .s<'ason, 
the Connecticut State combine out- 
scored the American International 
College quintet, of Springfield, 39 to 
27. Gold and Litman, forward and 
guard, respectively, were the out- 
standing men for the winners, chalk- 
ing up ten points each. 

Amherst and We.sleyan, the other 
two teams to be seen at the State 
cage, were both victims of State's 
powerful machine of 1934. In two 
games against the Lord Jeffs, the 
Tauliemen won 43 to 38, at Amherst, 
and 28 to 27, at M.S.C. Against

This winter's track schedule, which 
includes three relays and four dual 
meets, is one of the most ambitiou.s 
running projects ever undertaken at 
this college. The relay .squad made 
up of the capable veterans, captain 
Glenn Shaw, Ted Kerr, and Bob 
Lincoln, and some promising sopho- 
mores, Fred Whittemore, Jack Dobby, 
Frank Greenwood, and Owen Hrennan, 
practices daily for the opening K. of 
C. meet, to be held at the Boston 
Garden, January 26. The team selec- 
ted will race against many New 
England colleges in the one mile 
relay. As the first meet with Boston 
University does not come until Feb. 
23, many men who participate in the 
running and field events have not 
reported, and a.s yet the full strength 
of the squad cannot be determined.

Sextet Takes Measure Of Brown 
And M.LT. In Opening Games 

Corcoran and Bull 

Score in 4-2 Win 

Opening the winter sports season, 
the Maroon and White hockey team 
exhibited a fast and very effective 
type of play to hang up a win over 
the highly toutcnl Brown sextet at 
Providence last Friday night. Freddy 
Corcoran, flashy right wing, and Fred 
Hull, second line wingman, combined 
to do the scoring and insure the first 
State hockey victory since a Maroon 
and White sextet downed Colgate 
13-5 on February 10, 1933. 

The Statesmen showed good hockey 
and seemed to have taken good ad- 
vantage of the Christmas recess prac- 
tice sessions held in Stoneham. C«)ach 
"Red" Ball started a team compo.sed 



Colgate University officially dedi- 
cated a new .$2000 outdoor hoard 
track last Saturday afternoon. The 
new track is a tenth of a mile and has 
a 75-yard straightaway. At the same 
time, the Colgate graduate manager 
of athletics announced that Colgate 
has purchased a sixty-acre site in 
Hamilton upon which will be con- 
structed a new varsity football stadi- 
um, expected to seat between 15,000 
and 20,000. 

Yale College was accepted to mem- 
bership on Jan. 5 in the New England 
Intercollegiate Soccer League to which 
Mass. State belongs. Harvard's .soccer 
manager presented the league with a 
perpetual trophy, and after its accep- 
tance by the league it was in turn 
presented to Anxherst College, this 
year's league champion. Other col- 
leges now in the league are Harvard, 
Yale, Brown, Amherst, Wesleyan, 
Dartmouth, Connecticut, Springfield, 
and Williams. 

of Captain Roger Blackburn at center, 
Bill Brown at left wing, Fred Corcoran 
at right wing, Freddy Murphy at left 
defense and Dave Ro.ssiter at right 
defense, while Jimmy Valentine was 
in the nets. 

Play throughout the whole game 
was close with the State outfit showing 
surprising power against a hard fight- 
ing lirown team. Ka<;h team scort^d 
once in the first period, Henshaw 
counting for Brown after ten minutes 
and fifteen .seconds of the period had 
elapsed, and Fred Bull evening the 
count just before the period came to 
a close. 

Two-thirds through the second peri- 
od, Corcoran sneaked a shot past 
Skillings and put the SUitesmen in the 
fore. But a determined Brown effort 
met success four minutes later when 
Benton, Brown left wing, started a 
beautiful to Smithson, his right 
wing, and Smithson pushed the puck 
past Valentine. The pt^riod ended with 
the two teams deadlocked at two all. 
In the final period, the Statesmen 
put on steam in an endeavor to break 
the deadlock. Right at the beginning 
of the session, Corcoran evaded .several 
Brown players and .scored to give 
State a lead. State staved ofT the 
desperate attempts of the Bruinians 
to knot the count and Fred Bull rang 
up another goal at the thirte<>n 
minute mark to make things sure. 

That complettid the scoring and, 
with Valentine stopping everything 
that came his way, the game ended, 
Massachusetts State 4, Brown 2. 
The Statesmen showid a fine brand 
of hockey with a fast s«'cond line of 
Fred Bull, Ben Wihry, and Bill 
Johnson alternating with the first 
forward combination. In the last 
period, the Statesmen forced the battle 
right to the Brown goal and Corcoran 
scored to be followed by Bull's second

As in the game with Brown at I'rovi- 
dence, a decision was not reached 
until the third period. Ben Wihry 
scoretl his s(>cond goal of the game 
midway through this session and in- 
sured a .State win. 

The game started ofl" as rather a 
lifeless affair but both teams soon 
warme<l up and before the final 
whistle it developed into an aggres- 
sive tilt. Neither team was able t«) 
make nuuh progress in the first H<>ssion 
and it iippeared as though the |M>ri«Ml 
would end without a score, when 
Franklin Parker, Tech right dt'fense- 
man, lifted the puck over (ioalie 
Jimmie Valentine to ring up t>ne point 
for M.I.T. Jimmy had just made a 
lM>autiful diving save on one shot and 
was unable to receiver. Parker had 
no <lifliculty scoring after he received 
tlu' puck on a pass from Forshurg, 
Tech left wing. 

The next tw<) sessitms carritnl plenty 
of action with the Maroon and White 
continually carrying the assaults 
through the Tech defense right to the 
g«»al. As the end of the second canto 
was coming to a clow, Ben Wihry 
emerged from a mele<' right at (he 
Tech goal and guided the puck past 
.Steiger. Tech goalie. Coach "Red" 
Ball con.stimtly shifted the Stale 
forwards and the Maroon and White 
play(>d at high speed throughout the 
wbol<> contest. 

Half the final pericMi had elaps4>d 
Ijefore the deadlock was broken by 
Wihry. He sUirted on a l>eautiful 
solo, evaded all the Tech team, and 
scored after circling the Tech net. 
This gave the Maroon and White the 
necessary jioint to break the tie and 
it provtjd to be the winning count. 

Freddy ('orc-oran went through the 
entire Tech team on another si>lo 
later in the period ttnd had no trouble 
caging the puck, but the whistle 
nullified the scon-. The Statesmen 
successfuly protet-ted their lead until 
the end of the game, easily turning 
back frantic Tech efforts to s<-ore. 
The scoring efforts of Ben Wihry and 
the all-round hockey of Captain Roger

while Forsl)erg and Parker excelled 
for Tech. 'I'he lineup:

Home Economics Majors Practice 
Essentials of Clothing Design 

Clothing and textileH, one of the 
divisions in the department of Home 
Kconomics, \h not primarily concerned 
with the actual construction of gar- 
ments Rather, the euiphahis is placed 
on the extensive discussion, planning, 
and selection that precede this con- 
struction. Miss Hriggs, assistant pro- 
fessor in the department of H<»me 
Economics, maintains that "the most 
poorly made garment may also be 
most beneficial in the instruction of 
the Htudent." 

Several courses in clothing and 
textiles are open to girls whether or 
not they are majoring in the depart- 
ment. At the very beginning of her 
college career, the freshman "home 
ec" major studies t:lothing selection. 
She first learns in what consists the 
"right thing" to wear, and then she 
makes a careful study of herself antl 
her classmates that she may deter- 
mine what colors and textiles are most 
suitable, and hence, most flattering 
to her. 

I'm' of MiileriiilH 
For a knowledge of the quality of 
materials and how to buy them, the 
co-ed turns to the textile course. 
Here she develops a true interest in 
fabrics, especially those historically 
common to this section of the country. 
In this connection one recalls the 
sudden and intense revival of the i 
once-fashionable and popular paisley. 
No matter what the manufacturer 
may call it, it still remains paisley. In 
addition, the girls learn to appreciate 
tapestry, old lace and new lace, and 
the quilts that grandmother still re- ] 
members how to make. 

From an artistic point of view, the , 
sophomore course in applied design is 
the course for sheer enjoyment. Italian 
hemstitching, leather work, weaving, 
and block printing are but a few of 
these leisure-time activities which the 
student masters. 

As a junior, the home economics 
major advances to a semester of 
clothing selection and construction. 
How to express oneself by one's 
clothes! That is the focal point of the 
whole semester's work. In short, she 
learns to choose the right fabric for 
the right design for the right girl. In 
acquiring these "rights" the student 
combines design ideas, makes her own 
flat patterns, and the decorations 
which are to go on the dress. The 
present class of twenty-two girls has

Enrollment Begins 

In Ten-Week Course 

Beginning for another year, the 
ten-week short course has already 
enrolled twenty-three in its Dairy- 
Bacteriology and Greenskeeping 
courses. Because some of the courses 
are offered in alternate years, regis- 
tration this year is not expected to 
reach last year's total of 158. 

Hanging in age from twenty-three 
to fifty years, more than half of the 
students last year at some time had 
had college training. Most of them 
came from Massachusetts. A large 
percentage of the groups enrolled in 
the five-day forestry course for CCC 
foremen, which was and is the only 
one of its kind offered by any college. 
Like several of the other courses, it 
is short but very intensive. 

The Dairy-Bacteriology course is 
always filled to the maximum and is 
the best of its kind offered by any of 
the New Kngland land grant colleges. 
It is one of the two courses that run 
for the full ten weeks. 


Miss Bradley, who will discontinue 
her services as Assistant 4-H Club 
Leader, at a meeting held in the

India as a missionary. At the end of 
this month, she will liegin studying 
in New York until June. Early next 
fall she will sail for India under the 
auspices of the American Board of 
Foreign Missions. In India, Miss 
Bradley will teach English and later 
home economics in an established 
school there. 

I Bradley is a graduate in the

are recognized only when they reach 
the higher levels of the nervous sys- 
tem, and register definite pleasant or 
unpleasant sensations. Work by the 
modern school of electro- physiologists 
has shown that the nervous system is 
more than a complicated system of 
switchboards, wires, receivers, and 
transmitters; it is no longer to be 
compared with a telephone system, 
but rather to a wireless plant. The 
stimuli and sensations with which 
the individual is most familiar travel 
along certain definite paths, but the 
minute charges of electricity which 
are at work below the level of con- 
sciousness know no bounds, and move 
forward and backward in intricate 
patterns. It is these action currents 
which Professor DeSilva intends to 
study, for it is, he believes, 
which may have an important part 
in the make up of what is known as 

Professor Paul Weiss, noted nerve 
physiologist at the University of 
Chicago, has visited Dr. DeSilva in 
Amherst, and has offered to send him 
some of his own salamanders with 
specially grafted limbs, that he may 
study the motor action currents in 
nerves which are performing functions 
for which they were not originally 
intended. Dr. DeSilva intends to 
pick up propagated disturbances in 
the nerves of human beings by means 
of especially designed hollow needle 
electrodes which do not injure the 
subject, and by means of photographic 
equipment to make records of wave 
patterns on a nine inch cathode ray 

From the practical .standpoint. Dr. 
DeSilva believes that this work may 
lead to the explanaticm of hitherto 
unexplained phenomena. Is it po.ssible 
that minute charges of electricity 
may be responsible for the differences 
in individuals in regard to their 
abilities and activities".' "Muscle 
Readers," now considered as strange 
people who can determine what an 
individual is thinking or if they can 
come into physical contact with that 
individual, may have exceptional 
powers of insight because of the 
presence of large amounts of body 
electricity. The explanation of the 
fact that the natives of South Africa 
can hear and take messages from drums 
which the ear of the white man cannot 
detect may come with the unlocking 
of knowledge about what goes on 
below the level of consciousness. 

Criminologists are more than mildly 
interested in the newer developments 
in electrophysiology, for in this field, 
methods are being perfected which 
will detect the slightest deception. 
The Keeler Polygraph, the psycho- 
galvanometer, and now the pneumo- 
graph and oscillograph, have func- 
tioned nearly perfectly in bringing 
guilt and deception to the surface. 
Evidence secured by scientific devices 
cannot be presented in a court of law, 
but many private institutions employ 
"lie detectors" to put their houses in

American womanhood is in a ski- 
suit on the Ma.ssachusetts State Col- 
lege campus this winter. This current 
phenomenon is the result of a terrific 
contest between the State 
climate and the Mass. State men for 
the girls' favor. Climate is king, and 
the men are out in the cold. 

Cold or hot, the men are not able 
to get away from the manifestations of 
the phenomenon, for the ski-.suit8 are 
now the thing to wear on any occasion 
on campus more gala than a funeral. 
There is, however, one important 
exception to this custom. Ski-suits 
are not to be worn while skiing. Let 
it be repeated for those few misguided 
individuals who have been .seen actu- 
ally wearing them while skiing. The 
campus, the classroom, convocation, 
and the dining hall are allowed to 
resemble the advertisements of steam- 
ship companies depicting the joys of a 
winter in the Alps, but on skiis 

trousers. Yet, when faced with the 
choice of appearing pleasantly pleasing 
to their public or of going through the 
winter without freezing to death, men, 
they cast your opinion aside. 

In ski-suits the girls can laugh at 
the Mass. State winter merrily ha, 
ha — for it is always summer in a 
ski-suit. Several of them are fooling 
their public by wearing long winter 
woolies under the suits. They realize 
that in a skirt this would anjuse 
comment, but in a ski-suit no one u 
going to know the difference. 

It is not true that the suits are being 
favored especially by those wliose 
underpinning is not up to par, the 
theory being that what he't 
know won't discourage him, and the 
ski-suits cover everything but their 
noses. The girls admit that they look 
all woolly and a yard wide in the ski 
suits. They don't want to wear the 
suits except when the cold is with u.s. 
That means the suits are worn s«'ven 
days a week. 

This good advice is for the 7 out of 
10 who, by actual count in several 
classrooms, are wearing them. Bright 
greens and dark browns are favored 
this season with a sprinkling of scar- 
lets and blues. Half the women drape 
the trousers over the shoes. The other 
half don't bother. 

Why do they wear the things? You 
may well ask. Thou.sands have. Has 
this something to do with the war 
between men and women? No. It is 
older than that. It is older than 
Reinaerd's stories. It goes back to 
the beginning of time. It is the 
weather, all weather in general and 
the Mas.sachusett8 State ('ollege 
weather in particular. Men, the girls' 
secret is now your secret as part of 
our service to subscribers. 

The girls know that their figures arc 
not shown to best advantage in ski- 

The effect of the suits on the gentle- 
men has been of more than u.sual 
interest. They are agreed that a few 
of the suits are done justice by the 
girls, but they are not any too enthu- 
siastic over the appearance of most 
of them. They a.ssert that their 
aesthetic sense is being outraged. 
Typical comments of undergraduates 
are quoted as accurately as possible 
under the circumstances. 

"Why do they take such advnatage 
of the generous cut of the trousers?" 
inquired one youth. 

"But they look like blimps going 
around looking for a place to land!" 
exclaimed a lad still in his 'teens. 

A particularly cutting remark lingers 
unpleasantly with the hearers yet. 
After watching the girl he had been 
rushing go past in her new ski-suit, 
the man turned a tortured face to his

walking? Well, I did." Then he

The psycho-galvanometer is held in 
high esteem in a certain eastern 
university, both as a piece of lalwra- 
tory apparatus, and as a "special 
examiner" of suspected students. 

Professor DeSilva's work with the

bilities of being useful in the field of 
criminology, and may find itself an

They regard their own comfort more

"At the dawn of history, the con- 
ditions of life e.stablished what has 
become the traditional concept of the 
appropriate position of women in the 
social order. The chief function of 
woman was the rearing of children. 
Since her life was necessarily limited 
to her immediate surroundings, she 
failed to develop the capacity for 
group action. As a result, men 
acquired prestige at the expense of 
women. The education of women was 
confined to the rudiments necessary 
to her more limited and more personal 
life. What we have come to accept 
as the ideals of womanhood physical 
charm, modesty, chastity, docility, 
and efficiency in the home-making 
arts were merely created by the 
exigencies of the social situation. It 
was but a step to the acceptance of 
the concept that women were not 
only physically inferior to men, but 
mentally and socially inferior as well."

According to an announcement 
given out by Dean F> C. Marriner 
of Colby ('ollege, five or more genera- 
tions of American ancestry are one of 
the recjuirements for twenty new 
.scholarships of $100 each to Imj 
awarded annually by Colby College 
iK'ginning next fall. This unusual 
requirement is due to the stipulations 
contained in the will of the benefactor 
whc l)equeathed the fund. 

College enrollment this year in t la- 
United States is only a little iiehind 
that of the "prosiM-rity plateau" of a 
dozen years ago, according to the 
annual report of Dr. Raymond Walter, 
president of the Univ. of Cincinnati. 
Full-time enrollment is 5 percent 
ahead of last year, while freshman 
registration has increased by 14 per 
cent, the survey further revealed. 

known species that it includes. Thus, 
out of the 6800 species of thest> flii-s 
in the world, the collection contains 
more than 6000. The next largest 
collecti<m of these flies, that «»f the 
British Must>um, London, is a little 
more than a third as large. The 
results of the study of this great .series 
of crane-flies have bi-en published in a 
series of more than 400 re visional and 
systematic papers. 

Primitive K«>riiiM 
For the uninitiated, it may be 
stated that crane-flies are long-legged, 
mosquito-like flies, looking much like 
overgrown gnats but entirely diflferent 
in habits. These flies are very ancient 
and authentic apecimena have t)ei*n 
found as fossils as far back as the 
Palaeozoic age, some 200,000,000 years 
ago. The crane-flies of the Baltic 
Amber, some 40,000,000 years old, 
were studied by Dr. Alexander some 
years ago. The specimens are lM>auti- 
fully preserved and every detail of 
structure can Ih" examined und«*r the 
microscope, quite as satisfactorily as 
specimens taken today. Crane-flies 
are the more primitive' types of the'ct group that contains the com- 
mon species of hous(> flics and mos- 
quitoes. Hence, their study has ad- 
ditional value in relation to higher 

Soiirvi'M of f '«»ll(>etioii 
A specialized collection of this 
magnitude is built up in a variety of 
ways, of which a few of the mon; 
important may be indicated. First, 
the irollections made by the special 
student, these lM>ing restrict«*d in most 
cases by inability to trav«?l in many 
parts of the world. A trip to tlu- 
Rocky Mountains last summer added 
about fifty 8|H'cies to the collection. 

Second, the purchasi> of s|M>cimenH 
from collectors in remote regions of 
the world. A small sum per sp<-cimen 
results in s<>curing many noteworthy 
s|H'cies. The collection made in Min- 
danao and ("eleU's by Mr. CharU-s F. 
^'lagg '27, were among the most re- 
markable niad»' by any professicmal 
collector in reii'nt years. 

Third, and most ini[>ort:tnt, the 
priviU'ge of retaining duplicate sp«'<'i. 
mens from a ".series" .s»'nl Iti the 
special stud(>nl for identification. 
Museums in many parts of the world 
si'nd their crane-flies for delerminat ion. 
A lew of the most interest int; such 
.series in rec»>nt years include the 
Prime William of Swiulrn collections 
made in tlu> volcanic gorilla counlry 
of tlu' Kastern ('ongo and including 
many new species; the Dr. Srcn Hdiin 
collect ion.s made on the ( 'liina Tibet 
border at very high altitudes; the 
fleannil collections from the high 
mountains of Fast Afric.i, and the 
McMillan Labrador coll(>ctions of 19.34, 
the two last named having been just 
received for naming from the Paris 
Museum and the Unil«>d States Na- 
tional Mus4-um, respe«'tively. 

The great value of any particular 
«ollection of in.sects lies in the numlM^r 
of ty|M« sp(H-imens it containa, the 
type being the particular sp<>cimen 
from whit h a species is de.scrilN'<i as 
new to science. The colle<-tion of 
crane-flies discuss4>d is very rich in 
tyjM's, more than 4(MM) s|M>cies, origi- 
nally des(rrib<>d by Dr. Alexander, 
iH'ing represent(>d by type material. 
The ultimate disposition of this col- 
lection is still undeciiled but w^veral 
institutions in Ann*rica and Kuro|)o 
have indicated interest in the matter.

"Sir Roger de Coverley*' nridnt 

By Bernard S. Stepner '37 
The Hart House String Quartet 
gave a concert Tuesday evening in 
College Hall before an enthralled 
audience. The four virtuosi from 
Canada Messieurs deKresz, Adas- 
kin, Blackstone, and Hambourg 
presented at this concert, the second 
in the present season's Amherst (Com- 
munity Concert series. 

To "Papa" Haydn is given much 
of the glory of establishing the basic 
principles of string quartet writing, 
which fornrcd the foundation for the 
later efforts of Mozart and Beet- 
hoven. Haydn's facile pen has left 
us over eighty examples of this form 
of composition, all of which, of 
course, are not of equal merit. Haydn 
was a violin pupil of Porpora and loved 
his instrument. His thorough knowl- 
edge of technic occasionally finds vent 
in a surprising brilliancy of the leading 
violin part as compared to the work 
assigned by him to the other three ^ 
instruments. Feeble as his early i 
quartets (of which the one played j 
Tuesday is one) appear to us, he 
made steady in his art and j 
among his late quartets are many , 
gems with the master's inimitable 
settings of jocose humor, not infre- 
quently tinged with the deeper hues 
of pathos. Here the lower parts begin 
to show some of the vigor and free- 
dom previously only allowed to the 
first violin. Best known of his later 
string quartets is "The Kaiser Quar- 
tet" containing the air of the Austrian 
Festival hymn with variations 
which variations the Hart House 
Quartet generously added as encore. 

The Schumann quartet played be- 
longs to the standing repertoire of all 
string quartet organizations. It is 
music from the heart in the best vein 
of the composer of "Kreisleriana,'. 

"Frauenliebe und Leben," and the 
Piano Concerto, a little aphoristic in 
form occasionally, as he is in many of 
his piano works, lacking the broader 
outlines of the classical quartets, but 
delightfully human and spontaneous. 
Through all its numbers the Hart 
House Quartet was in mastery of every 
resource, in command of every style. 
Before it the reviewer does not dwell 
upon the primary virtues of quartet- 
playing. These went for granted, 
while the four from Canada enlarged 
or refined upon them. Rather, the 
listener thrilled to the lightness of 
phrase and accent, pace and tone, 
with which they sounded Haydn's 
lighter movements; the grave and 
poignant sonorities with which they 
set forth Schumann's Adagio move- 
ment. Loyal to Bridge, they softened 
none of his alleged "modernities"; 
only fused them into a music that in 
performance leapt with his rhythms 
or strode with his power. Thence to 
McEwen's melodious calm. Whatever 
it undertook, the Hart House Quartet 
sensitized, vitalized, charactered.

assistant professor of entomology and 
beekeeping in 1931. 

At the university, a Chinese co- 
educational institution, Prof. Kellogg 
will teach entomology and beekeeping 

part of the time. He will also serve 
in the extension service, and do re- 
search work. 

In comparing the attitudes of the 
Chinese students and of those on the 
State campus, Professor Kellogg spoke 
of the American student's interest in 
sports and lack of participation in 
politics. The condition is reversed in 
China where the students take an 
active part in political demonstrations 
and have to be forced to participate 
in athletics. 

Since the prejudice against the 
students taking part in sports has 
lessened, the men at the university 
have developed into superior basket- 
ball and tennis players. Baseball has 
been hampered by a lack of room up 
to the present time. 

Prof. Kellogg is an honorary life 
member of the American Museum of 
Natural History, a member of Phi 
Sigma Honorary Biological Society, 
an associate member of the American 
Association of Economic Entomolo- 
gists, a fellow of The Peking Society 
of Natural History, and a member of 
the North China Branch of the Royal 
Asiatic Society, of the China Society 
of Science and Arts, and of the Apis 
Club, London.

However, only senior girls who are 
particularly interested in clothing are 
allowed to continue with advanced 
clothing problems. The seven girls 
who are now working on these prob- 
lems do all their own designing, make 
their own patterns, and, of course, 
make their own garments. The .stud- 
ents are primarily concerned with the 
correct use of unusual fabrics in the 
creation of unusual products. As 
practical problems, the girls make a 
flat pattern dress, a make-over and a 
lining project, and, as the goal of all 
past clothing work, a problem in 
draping is executed. In commenting 
upon the latter project, Miss Briggs 
explained that "draping is the 
flexible and most difficult of all de- 
sign. When the draping has been 
completed, however, a student has a 
feeling of great satisfaction in having 
constructed something unusual and 
wholly expressive of her own per- 

"From the financial point of view," 
she concluded, "one of our aims in 
clothing is to make a dress costing 
five dollars (average cost of each dre.s8 
made this year) look like one of 
twenty-five dollars."

Varsity Club Quartet Scheduled 
For Performance Tomorrow Night 


An ever popular group will return 
to campus tomorrow evening at 7 p.m. 
with the appearance of the Varsity 
c'lub Quartet of Boston on the Social 
Union program. This musical organ- 
ization has visited the campus a 
number of times, notably in 1932 and 
last year. 

Made up of William Clifton, tenor; 
Cieorge Wheeler, tenor; A. Ralph 
Tailby, baritone; and Ralph Isensee, 
bass; and accompanied by Earl 
Weidner at the piano, the quartet has 
been received favorably by the entire 
student group of all of its previous 

The program will consist of both 
solo and group numbers, opening with 
a rendition of three songs by the 
quartet. Mr. Weidner, who is ar- 
ranger as weU as pianist for the group, 
will render an organ solo. 


The Religious Council will once 
more bring a distinguished guest to 
the campus for a three-day conference 
with the students. Dr. Charles W.

Dr. Mcpherson of the Belchertown 
State Hospital addressed the Social 
Science Club Tuesday evening on 
"The Menace of Feeble-mindedncss." 
The facts of the subject, which indi- 
cate an increasing menace to society, 
were revealed. Belchertown State 
Ho.spital is one of the many public 
hospitals which guide the feeble- 
mind«'d through life. The public 
must change its attitude toward 
f«-l)le-mindedness if a very serious 
condition in society is to be checked 
in time, according to Dr. McPherson, 
who is well-known for his extensive 
work and who has spoken on campus 
manv times. 

On Thursday night, Jan. 17, the 
Glee Club will present a concert at 
the Neuro-Psychiatric Institute in 
Hartford, Conn. The program will 
be composed of selections by the Glee 
Club and by the Quartet and solos by 
James Kerr, Mr. Stratton, and George 

The men's quartet is composed of 
the following students: James Kerr

Virtue Never Unrewarded 
Asserts Chapel Speaker 

Dr. Henry H. Crane challenged the 
superstition that "If you are good, 
you get your reward; and if bad, you 
get repaid" when speaking at the 
cha|x-l st^rvices last Sunday. Dr. 
Crane, a pastor of the 
Kpi.scopal Church in Stratton, Pa., 
cited in his discussicjn that virtue is 
its own reward, a .scenario that he 
wrote showing the opposite fact as 
true which was rejected by producers 
as unreal. 

"One does not get a material re- 
ward for lK!ing good, but rather a 
certain satisfaction which is enough 
reward in itself." Dr. Crane is repaid 
for iK'ing a preacher by coming in 
contact with the great dramas of life. 
With two stories he explained that if 
everything was alright, there would 
l>e no God; but as everything is not 
perfect, there must be a God. 

The speaker .said that a person 

cannot attain a higher level of life

Kerosene was perhaps the largest 
commodity sold at that time, selling 
at the fancy price of fifty cents per 
gallon. Dr. Brooks recalls that during 
the period he operated the store, the 
Rockefeller reduced the 
price of kerosene by a substantial 
amount and since the store was the 
only place at this end of town where 
kero.sene could be bought, the owners 
reaped a fair profit at the old price.

Roister Doisters Plan 
Production on March 1 

On March 1st, the Roister Doisters 
will present as their annual winter 
play AHwrto Casella'a "Death Takes 
A Holiday." This play is both well- 
known and popular and was produced 
as a motion picture in which F'rederic 
March played the stellar role. Re- 
hearsals for the play are being held 
three times a week. By continued 
progress the cast is slowly reaching 
its desired goal, a finished pro<luction 
of Death Takes A Holiday. 

As a result of the tryouts h<;ld on 
Nov. 22, the leading role of His 
Serene Highness, Prince Sirki, was 
awarded to John L. MtrC^onchie '36, 
while the leading feminine role of 
(irazia will Im' taken by Ix)is Macom- 
Iwr '38. 

Four veteran memliers of the Roister 
Doisters will take part in the play. 
Kdward I... Law '36 will appear as 
Duke I.^mbert; Marguerite M. Ford 
'36 as the Princess of San Luca; 
Bernice J. Dolan '35 as Rhoda Fenton; 
and Max Cramer '37 as Ft'dele. 

I..iiter the Roister DoLsters plan to 
sponsor four one-act plays, partici- 
pation in which will l>e prohibited to 
memlK'rs «»f the cast of the winter 
play. This later presentation will take 
place on March 29 and will give other 
students interested in dramatics a 
chance to exhibit their respective

First Indexes Record History 

Of Athletics Fifty Years Ago 

"Ballists" is the ht.'ading in the 
1878 Index for the records of the 
athletic teams of that year. A clinical 
.study of the bandaging of the mortally 
wounded is the self-explanatory illus- 
tration of the text that follows. 
M.A.('.B.B.A. with its Aggie Nines, 
M.A.C.F.B.A. with its College Fif- 
teens, the CJym Association, the Fenc- 
ing A.ssociation, the boxing, and 
for some reason the "tachygraphy" (shorthand to you) were in- 

In this and the three years follow- 
ing, the game must have l>een played 
for the sport of the thing, for no 
scores are given. It was a grand 
occasion when the football team, for 
the first time since its organization, 
was uniformed in a neat suit in 1880. 
"Maroon and white cap, white can- jackets, white canvass pants, and 
Maroon stockings provided by sub- 
scriptions among stiidents and facul- 
ty" enabled the Aggies to compete on 
equal terms with the city slickers of 
the day. Perhaps it was this lack of 
a distinguished wardrobe that enabled 
Amherst to defeat M.A.C'. in a ma:< ^ 
game of ftxjtball the year before. 

In these four years, the f(M>tball 
team changcnl from "fifttjens," eight 
forwards, four halfbacks, and thrtH* 
backs, in 1878 to "elevens," six rush- 
ers, three half-tends, two tends, in 
1879, to the mf»re modern six rushers, 
two backs, two halfbacks, and one 
tend in 1881. 

To the Rifle Ass(K:iation, organized 
in 187.^), gtx's the credit for being the 
first M.A.C. team to get an alibi for 
a defeat into the Index. In 1879, the 
team lost to both Unitm and Alle- 
gheny. A frM>tnote on the Allegheny 
meet tells the story. "Our defeat was 
greatly due to our adversaritis using 
the new .4.') calibre rifle, we used old

Woman's place . . . 

In a recent debate, Dartmouth, up- 
holding the traditions that have made 
Dartmouth the crossroads of the 
world, argued that woman's place 
was not in the home; Smith College, 
upholding the traditions that have 
made Dartmouth an isolated institu- 
tion, maintained it was. 

"To leave a woman in the house is 
to subject her to the menace of the 
Fuller Brush Man!" argued Dart- 

"After all," smiled Smith College 
pleadingly, "don't you want a wife 
who can handle a Fuller Brush Man?" 

Four rounds to no decision. 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

The December 6 issue of the 
Collegian carried in the Agora column 
a letter containing a series of questions, 
comments, and intimations which 
should be clarified. 

Through a clever combination of 
unsubstantiated statements and a 
number of questions, the Conservative 
made two serious implications: 

1. That a permanent beaurocracy 
should be accepted rather than the 
shifting corruption of our republic, 

2. That the State College should 
close its doors to a further prospective 
influx of students. 



As we conclude our last issue, with all sincerity we quote: 

"I have made mistakes, but they have been mistakes of the head, not 
of the heart. I can truly say, and take upon myself to witness, 
that in my sojourn with you, 

I have loved no darkness, 
Sophisticated no truth. 
Nursed no delusion. 
Allowed no fear." 

Collitch life . . . 

As reported in the R. I. Beacon. 

She: "Aren't we going to the 
Sophomore Hop?" 

He: "No, my FERA money didn't 
come through." 


Willi! IS ColU'tio for? 
In our minds, the purpose of the college is to teach the student how to 
live. The college as a physical unit, the profes.sors, the courses, the textbooks, 
the classes, the campus activities, all combine in the instruction of the student. 
We believe the professors are the most important factor in the accomplish- 
ment of the purpose of the college. We feel that there is something to be had 
out of college in addition to book knowledge and technical skill. This some- 
thing is splendid associations among the professors and the 8tudent.s. Un- 
doubtedly a student who will forget most of the book knowledge will never 
forget his associations with an able and friendly professor, inside and outside 
of the classroom. Woodrow Wilson said that college had two purposes, mental 
discipline and general experience. The association of the professor and the 
student is invaluable in the accomplishment of both of these purposes. 

Mriitiil DiNflpiine 
It is in (he field of mental discipline that the student and the professor 
have the most frequent a.ssociations. The professor in the classroom who 
displays a brilliance of technique, execution and thought, encourages more 
the undergraduate to .seek knowledge for itself, than does the profes.Hor who 
is static, uncapable and inefficient in his teaching. Students appreciate pro- 
fessors with "great minds," and gain more from their as.sociations with them 
in the clas-srooms than from associations with profe.s.sors who act as robots 
themselves, and treat the students as puppets. Thus we find innumerable 
students taking courses the content of which may be uninteresting, but which 
is taught by a brilliant professor. Students like profe.ssors that are alive, 
self-relying, and self-reflecting human beings, who have not stopped learning, 
and who sincerely attempt to develop the mind of the student. These associ- 
ations with brilliant thinkers in the clas.sroom is an invaluable part of a college 


Cieiieriil Kxperit'iice 

Doctor Osier wrote that the college student should develop three charac- 
teristics: steadfastness t)f purpose, humility, and an honest heart. Not only 
by his formal as.sociations with the student in the classroom, but also in the 
daily, friendly life of the campus, can the professors help the student to culti- 
vate these qualities. A college education is a life course, and the student 
should learn a knowledge f)f men. His contacts with the professor at the 
professors home, or in conversation, make a permanent impression on the 
student. On these occasions the student is treated not as a puppet but as an 
equal man by the professor, and the student acquires an invaluable experience. 

At Our Cf>ll€>ite 

We l)elieve that the assr)ciation8 of the professors and the student at this 
college could be improved to a mutual benefit. The majority of our professors 
remain aloof from the students, adopting a superficial attitude of superiority. 
How much more popular and more successful are the professors who are 
friendly with the students, and who sincerely attempt to cultivate the students 
knowledge of men. We congratulate the handful of our professors on this 
campus who try to know the student better through personal conferences, 
friendly conversations, and invitations to their homes. We hope that the 
other profe.s8ors will drop their attitude of indifference and superiority to the 
individual student, and encourage a friendly and mutual association, both in 
the field of mental discipline, the classroom, and in the field of general ex- 

Eighty-five proof . . . 

Consider the case of the Bowdoin 
professor who, wishing to see more of 
life in the raw, took in a dime-a-dance 
palace. As he approached the best- 
looking hostess in the place, she ex- 
claimed: "Oh, you belong to the 
same club I do!" 

And she drew from her bosom a 
key which, when turned over, re- 
vealed the sacred inscription: 

Phi Beta Kappa, Radcliffe, 1929. 

Blowtorch says that Reinaerd's jokes 
Are of the immemorial. 
Removed perhaps from literature 
That moulds in shops tonsorial. 

I'm glad to know that Blowtorch has 

Faith enough in me 

To rank me as a raconteur 

Of tales of history. 

For Blowtorch is the worthy sage 
Who penned that dissertation 
Upon the why's and wherefores of 
The ski-suit situation. 

And proved his mind was well atuned 
To sundry things around. 
And truly quite compatible 
To sundry things expound. 

So far be it for a poor old fox, 
In manner mean and subtle. 
To darken out a blowtorch flame 
In poctique rebuttal. 

But it must be known though Blow- 
torch has. 
In the fire of explaining. 
Fed us all the dope he knows, 
Still there's one point remaining. 

It is without a .single doubt. 
The underlying reason 
Why multi-varied shapes are hid 
When winter snow's in sea.son. 

The truth is this: that women know 
And have known since creation 
That their greatest mark of beauty lies 
In man's imagination. 


We hope that the officials of the College will not neglect the excellent oppor- 
tunity at hand to begin a permanent art collection at Massachusetts State. 
There are innumerable paintings, works of sculpture, and other art treasures, 
scattered around the various buildings. Most of these beautiful pieces of art 
are in an inconspicuous place where not many people may appreciate them. 
The comment in the past has been that there was no place to house a perma- 
nent historical art collection at this college. We believe that the new Goodell 
Library furnishes an excellent opportunity to amass all the scattered art 
treasures on this campus and to begin a permanent art collection. This col- 
lection will make a valuable contribution to the esthetic value of our college 
as well as serving as an interesting and important historical record. 

As a result, probably, of a statement 
appearing here two weeks ago, Rein- 
aerd has found no less than four 
persons racking their brains for a 
word that rhymes with orange. Up 
to press time none of them have been 
successful. In fact some of them have 
given up entirely. So in order to 
stimulate activity in this all-important 
quest, Reinaerd hereby announced 
that there Ls one and only one rhyme 
for the well known fruit. Reinaerd 
knows, but do you? The old fox hopes 
not, for he is taking this opportunity 
to offer an autographed orange to 
each of the first two persons to report 
the correct word. 

A close analysis of that letter re- 
veals that it is wholly devoid of sig- 
nificant self-evident fact, while com- 
ments which are significant are neither 
self-evident nor substantiated. Since 
the Conservative established no sig- 
nificant factual basis, either proven or 
self-evident, the above implications 
are unwarranted on his part. The 
thinking in the letter exhibits none of 
the qualities of "true learning" and 
"free inquiry" to which the author 
does lip-service. The Conservative's 
disdainful reference to Socialism and 
Communism is an example of the in- 
fringement of that principle. The 
dogmatic as.sertion that there is some- 
thing manifestly ugly about Socialism 
and Communism is an appeal to the 
smug prejudice, which is incompatible 
with "free inquiry." The most ap- 
parent "ugliness" about them is their 
threat to liberty, and is the main 
objection brought forward by both 
conservatives and liberals. Our Con- 
servative did not specify that 
he was repudiating democracy, and 
therefore liberty, for beaucracy. 

That same quality of "free inquiry'' 
is looking to the dogmatic a-ssertion 
that "as industry has expanded be- 
yond the safety zone, so too has the 
American university." "Is size to be 
confused with grandeur, is scale to be 
the gauge of stability?" asks the 
Conservative. The answer is a thou- 
sand times "No." Then why limit 
the size of our college, if size is an 
unimportant factor? But "size," to 
our Conservative, has only the mean- 
ing of "bigness," and not of degree. 
He meant to say "Is bigness to be 
confu.sed with grandeur, is bigness to 
be the gauge of stability?" Let us 
consider him as saying that. We have 
then, the part of the author of that 
letter, the undeniable implication that 
smallness is to be identified with 
grandeur, is to be the gauge of sta- 
bility, an implication not substanti- 
ated to the slightest degree. Let it be 
clear that this is not a denial of that 
implication, but merely a calling of 
attention to the part that its author 
gives us nothing in its support. He 
establishes no connection between the 
quality and size of an educational 
institution. In fact, if we take him 
literally, he implies that there is no 
such connection though his plea for 
the limitation of educational facilities 
at the State College is contradictory 
to that implication. 


Mother of JokeM 

Among other traditions of Maasa- 
chusetts State College that have 
survived the test is the classroom 
joke. Perhaps a little battered by u.s« 
or changed by time but its motif 
intact, a veteran of '80 conie 
to light in every corner. A.s 
part of our service to subscribers, we 
have traced a few of these jokes from 
their burial place in the M.S.C.

the present time. Our report i.s

The suggestion that a permanent 
beaurocracy should be accepted rather 
than our republic with its shifting 
corruption was set forth weakly, de- 
pending on its parallel development 
with the "education idea" for its 
strength. It should be apparent that 
if American democracy gives way to 
be beaurocracy that beaurocracy will 
be Fascism. Intellectual light and 
freedom, if we may take Germany 
and Italy as examples, have no place 
in the Fa.scist system. Yet, the 
Conservative unites beaurocracy, limi- 
ted educational facilities and the ideal 
university into a harmonious whole. 

The whole of the Conservative's 
letter is nothing but a blind cry of 
reaction. The thinking in it is typical 
of conservatism today vague, 
flowery, and unsubstantiated. We can 
get along with much less of it than 
we now have. 


In some cases the motif has been 
developed further, instead of remain- 
ing in its original form. A typical 
example follows.

State Netmen Win Opener 26-24 
Jeffmen Open Town Series Sat. 


Sinking a basket in the last minute 
of play. Bill Davis, center and co- 
ciptain of the Mass. State basketball 
team, provided the winning margin as 
the Maroon and White hoopmen de- 
feated the Williams College basket- 
hall team last Saturday, at Williams- 
lown, by the score of 26 to 24. 

The game throughout was slow and 
rather sloppy, the lead see-sawing 
hack and forth many times before the 
final whistle had blown. Very little 
scoring was done during the first half 
uf the game, the score standing at 7-7 
at the end of the second period. 

In the first few minutes of play, the 
Caldwell men chalked up five points 
hefore a State ball had found the 
hasket. The Statesmen soon broke 
into the scoring column, though, 
when Barr dropped one in from the 
left for two points and followed this, 
immediately with another point from 
the foul line. Nassif evened the 
count with another basket. 

In the second half of the contest, 
Jaworski opened up with a barrage of 
lung shots that found the hoop to pull 
up the Maroon and White average. 
For the entire period neither team 
had an advantage of more than a few 
points, at any time. Sheehan, the 
sophomore from Holyoke, lived up to 
expectations, and although it took 
him a little time to get started, he 
ihalked up seven points for the Royal 
I'urple before the game was over. 

Nick Holmes, who it was thought 
would be unable to play because of a 
knee injury, came into the game near 
the end of the third period with his 
knee heavily bandaged, and scored 
three points before he was replaced. 
The Purple star exhibited great de- 
fensive qualities in the few minutes he 
was in action. The other men who 
distinguished themselves for the losers, 
were "Buster" Navins, who alter- 
nated at right guard with Jones, and 
Kroll, who played the entire game at 
right forward. Navins contributed six 
points to his team's cause, while 
Captain Kroll added another six to 
the Williams total. 

In the final periods both teams held 
the advantage at different times. 
Towards the end of the game, the 
play began to get rather rough. 

Nassif and Jaworski did very well 
in the Mass. State backcourt. Both 
Were outstanding defensively and of- 
fensively, breaking up many Williams 
scoring threats. Jaworski was the 
high scorer of the evening, converting 
four baskets and a foul shot for a 
total of nine points.
